About me

I am a qualified counsellor happy to explore with you any difficulties, concerns, struggle or anxiety you may be experiencing in your life. My formal training is in Humanistic Counselling based on Person-Centred approach. The humanistic approach provides you with an opportunity to explore your self-development, so you have a deeper understanding of who you are and what are are feeling, resulting in improved self-awareness. My person-centred approach means that I strive to build a collaborative and trusting relationship which will allow you to focus on what is important to you because you are the expert of your life.

My aim is to offer you a listening ear alongside a safe, empathic and non-judgmental environment to positively support you to explore your needs which can include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem, work, family, bereavement or anything else you wish to bring. Rather than imposing solutions, I will instead support you in taking steps to explore your individual difficulties at your own pace, which can provide you with a greater understanding of them and therefore help you discover the best solution that works for you.

Although I am predominantly Person-Centred in my approach, I will also draw on different modalities such as Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) dependent on your needs and goals.

I work with Adults, Children and Young People and have a full DBS.

As a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I agree to adhere to the good counselling practice as described by the BACP ethical guidelines. This ensures I treat everyone with the same respect and that I deliver a safe and professional level of counselling, keeping your best interests at the core. Alongside this, I regularly attend supervision and engage in further professional training, to make sure I can help you in the best possible way.​ I also hold full public liability insurance.
