About me

You may be troubled by past events or fearful of the future. It may that you are seeking to understand where you are today or feel adrift. Anxiety, depression, trauma, phobia’s, addictions, families, employment and bereavements affect us all in different ways.

As an experienced integrative counsellor, I offer a safe, empathic space, for us to build a therapeutic relationship, where you feel able to explore the fears and challenges that are troubling you, in a way that respects your understanding of life.

I believe that we all have the capacity to move beyond the holds of past experiences and to address our fears for the future, leading to a more satisfied and confident life.

Coming to counselling may provoke fear as we contemplate sharing difficulties, as a registered accredited Counsellor I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. This ensures that you are my primary concern when we are working together, I will maintain professional standards, show you respect and build a working relationship with you. At all times, I will maintain integrity and be accountable for the work we undertake.

My integrative training means that I have studied and evaluated many different counselling theories and can draw on this knowledge to ensure that you are fully supported and understand the work we do.
