Hello - Welcome I am a Integrative Counsellor and I work from my home, this is a comfortable place where I hope you will feel safe. I work with a wide range of clients and issues. I enjoy being able to support people through difficult times in their lives, and see them make real progress. I've had some tough times in my own life so I have experience of how hard and lonely it can be when you try to work through things on your own. That's why I treat everyone I work with as an individual, tailoring a course and style of therapy to suit your needs, providing you with the right environment and support to explore and work through whatever your particular issue is, and we'll do it at your pace, together. I have lots of training and have specialised in both Eating Disorders and Bereavement.
I know how desperate it can feel to be out of control, but also know how wonderful life can be on the other side of therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience

Through my Counselling Training I have been able to take the best elements of well-known counselling and psychotherapy models and put them together in a tried and tested approach - this is called psychotherapeutic counselling. This allows me to work with individuals with a wide range of problems, whilst it helps you develop your own self-knowledge and understanding.
I have experience of working with eating disorders, anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement and self esteem.
