About me

Most of us will feel the need for extra support during certain periods of our lives. Sometimes, the best form of support is counselling. Once you take that crucial first step and pro-actively seek to find answers, solutions or someone who listens carefully and without judgement, the journey begins. We would explore your challenges together and build up the skills and confidence that will enable you to lead a better life.

Training, qualifications & experience

As an integrative practitioner qualified in 2008, the focus of my work is on building a trusting relationship and creating an individual therapy plan tailored to the person's needs.

I have extensive experience working with both children and adults, affected by a wide variety of difficulties. Here are some of the issues I've encountered most frequently:

  • anxiety
  • anger
  • relationship difficulties (romantic, family, friendships)
  • hopelessness
  • loneliness and isolation
  • family breakdown
  • sexuality
  • confidence
  • bereavement and loss
  • domestic violence
  • work related stress

Qualification: Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Canterbury College.
