About me

I have worked in a range of counselling settings, as a staff and student counsellor in a University setting, a schools’ counsellor working with children between the ages of nine to nineteen, in a charity working with victims of rape and sexual abuse and in private practice.

My Approach

I work with an integration of the Humanistic Existential approach which is person centred combined with Acceptance Commitment Therapy, which works with behavioural change based on client values.

I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where trust can be established. I work in a collaborative way with clients to view problems and issues that they are facing to help them in gaining new perspective and building skills to deal with difficult thoughts and feelings, so that they have less influence and impact on daily life.

I work with clients to focus on choices based on core values and to help identify and work with emotional intelligence in a creative way which can unlock self-awareness and understanding, allowing observation of problems and clarity for greater coping mechanisms. My aim to help each client to feel less overwhelmed and supported to meet external and internal challenges and to work in a flexible, way taking into account individual needs.
