About me

I qualified as an integrative counsellor several years ago and have gained experience working with adults, children and young people for several charities including Cruse Bereavement, Cotswold Counselling and Teens in Crisis before opening my own private practice.

I am very passionate about my work and believe that through developing a strong working relationship people can change and heal. Most things go back to loss whether it be death of a loved one, loss of our identity or purpose, the break-down of a relationship, redundancy, loss of a job or children flying the nest.  By sitting alongside someone who is warm, compassionate and non-judgemental we can look at these experiences and untangle and make sense of things.

Often traumatic events can lead to increased anxiety and depression.  This is often a bodily reaction and we can look at coping strategies and resource you.  Sometimes it goes deeper, and we may need to look at childhood experiences as they can affect our response to situations and our behaviour in adult relationships.

Through attending regular counselling sessions and developing a therapeutic relationship we can re-build resilience and increase self-awareness which will hopefully lead to restoration, healing and ultimately acceptance.
