About me

I am a BACP registered and accredited counsellor. I also have a Counselling Diploma and a UKATA Diploma in Transactional Analysis Practise.

People come to counselling and psychotherapy for lots of different reasons.  Clients have said that talking to someone objective, outside their daily lives, helps to make greater sense of problems they're facing.  Others have said just talking is a relief, and they feel the benefits of having a place to bring thoughts and feelings they don't feel comfortable talking about elsewhere.  It is a private space to bring whatever is important for you.

My role is to help you understand the meaning and value of what you bring with empathy, non-judgement, validation, and challenge where appropriate.  As well as helping you build awareness about unhelpful patterns and realise that you have the skills within you to make the changes you want.  The direction and length of therapy will be for us to work out together, I am guided by what you want and need.

I have extensive experience working with a wide range of issues including (though not limited to) alcohol and substance misuse issues including working with couples on this issue, long term health conditions, anxiety, depression, change, loss and bereavement, relationship issues including affairs, betrayal, arguments and repeating patterns, childhood issues, abuse, difficulties in managing strong feelings including anger or grief, stress, and issues around identity.

I have experience working with individuals, and couples, for the short, medium and long-term.

If you'd like to discuss how counselling or psychotherapy could help you, please email or phone me on 07817 510 943.
