About me

I offer a secure and safe environment to explore and work through the issues you bring. There are times in our lives when we feel unable to move forward freely, or perhaps struggle to manage our daily lives. Sometimes it is difficult to find the confidence to make decisions, small ones or life changing. As an empathic and experienced Integrative Counsellor I have developed an approach that is adaptable to the needs of each individual. We will explore the issues you bring and look closely at relationships of all kinds, with others, with the world, with our past and present, and within the therapy itself. Given the right environment and support we all have the ability to make changes. I work both short and long term with clients.
Through my work over the years I have been made acutely aware that there are many who cannot travel or leave their homes, for varying reasons, so I do offer home visits to the housebound.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc (Hons) in Integrative Psychotherapeutic counselling, and a Certificate in Person-centred Counselling. I have worked in an advice and support role for many years with different client groups. I have gained invaluable experience working with people struggling with addictions, or suffering with anxiety and depression, eating disorders, abuse of many kinds, grief and illness.
