I am a fully qualified counsellor with a background of 17 years’ experience as a professional Shiatsu practitioner, which gives a depth of experience, sensitivity and understanding to my Counselling. I work integratively which means I draw on a variety of theoretical models (including Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis) in order to meet the individual needs of each client in a unique and personal way.
I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is of paramount importance so I offer a low cost initial 30 minute consultation to explore your reasons for seeking counselling and whether we feel we can work well together. I offer short term (6-12 sessions) and longer term counselling, with regular reviews to keep us on course in reaching your goals. I also offer online counselling.
I am a registered member of the BACP and am committed to their standards of ethics and professionalism.
