About me

In my practice in Shrewsbury and Oswestry I work with adults, young people (11+) and couples across a diverse range of issues that arise in counselling. My areas of interest and specialism are bereavement, domestic abuse, couples therapy and psychosexual therapy. I am a person centred counsellor, but where appropriate I also draw on behavioral and psycho dynamic approaches and use mindfulness and CBT techniques and methods. I am experienced in delivering both short term and long term therapy. I also offer online and telephone counselling.

I understand how daunting it can be seeking counselling and finding a counsellor who you can trust and be honest and open with. I aim to provide a professional, safe, confidential and non judgmental space in which you will be able to explore recent and long standing personal issues and to gain a greater understanding of your unhappiness and distress and find a way to manage this. My main priority is to make this a positive experience for you, and for the changes to be long standing.

The fundamental part of my practice is the client-counsellor relationship, which i believe to be the heart of successful therapy. I will work collaboratively with you to determine which way of working suits your current situation and your needs. I also place great importance on creating a respectful therapeutic alliance, where you will feel safe and comfortable to explore your issues.
