About me

My passion and reason for working as a counsellor is based on a genuine interest in helping people find acceptance and friendship within themselves. I hope to offer you a compassionate, listening ear when times get tough, facilitate a safe place for you to come when feelings or events in your life feel like they are overwhelming, or if you want to explore patterns of behaviour that no longer serve you. Whatever your reason for seeking counselling at this time, talking to a professional puts you at the center of the situation you are in and enables you come to an outcome that works for you.

By offering an integrative and person centered approach, I aim to work with a variety of theories and approaches that will support you. I work in a manner which values the relationship we build, which in turn respects the idea of healing through relationships with others. I aim to create a positive therapeutic relationship in which to facilitate change and personal development in your journey through counselling.

I am experienced in working with:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Panic
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Addiction
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Loneliness
  • Self harm
  • Life changes
  • Personal development.

Having worked for many years with a leading mental health charity I have insight into how mental ill health impacts on so many aspects of your life. It can be debilitating, making things we take for granted like going to work or shopping become fearful experiences. I also recognise the impact it can have on family, friends and people who support someone who is suffering from mental health issues.

Our feelings, thoughts and emotions can be very complex at times and it can feel easier to try to ignore them, which can work for a while. However, when they can no longer be pushed down and won't be ignored it takes great courage to begin the process of recognising and accepting that you may need help to begin to unpick these thoughts so you can move forward in a healthier way.

I am a registered member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework -membership no. 783926.
