I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor working with both adults and young people. I have a strong personal philosophy of being alongside my clients in whatever situation they may find themselves in and giving them a safe and confidential place to explore.
I believe that working with the right counsellor, being able to express your thoughts and feelings in a safe, trusting and non-judgemental environment is the key to knowing yourself and the catalyst for change. I have a wealth of experience and am able to work with diverse issues including, anxiety, work-related stress, relationships, self-harm, sexuality & gender, addiction, disability, esteem, identity and trauma.
I have worked in a variety of settings including a young people's agency and educational establishments, working with both young people and staff, as well as my private practice based in Yateley, Hampshire.
I have a passion for enabling others to grow, learn, develop and gain a deeper understanding of themselves and how they interact with others.
I am a Counselling Lecturer at Farnborough College of Technology.
