About me

We are all unique. It is my belief that we are shaped by our life experiences and relationships, particularly those from childhood. With my help and support you can explore whatever has caused you to seek counselling and discover how the past may be influencing the way you think, feel and behave in the present. I will help you to recognise and make sense of any thoughts, feelings or patterns of behaviour you are troubled by or don't understand.

To do this, I will provide a safe, confidential, and comfortable environment at a regular time for you to express and explore those thoughts, feelings and behaviours you are struggling with. Working together, I will offer you tools and techniques to help you discover your inner strengths and uncover the links between your past experiences and present thoughts, feelings and behaviour. This will empower you to find your own solutions to your difficulties, broaden your sense of self, and enable you to make lasting, effective positive change as you move forward with your life.  

My work encompasses working with adults and young people age 12+

As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to their ethical guidelines for safe practice and attend regular supervision.
