Hi I am a fully qualified, experienced integrative counsellor, having worked within the NHS, the private sector and in private practice for a number of years. I use a variety of counselling approaches to suit each of my clients' needs, including CBT(Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Most importantly, I place a great deal of emphasis on offering all my clients warmth and understanding and on developing a trusting, confidential relationship.
We can all find ourselves facing difficult situations at various times in our lives and sometimes having someone to listen is all we need. I offer a safe environment for my clients to discover and explore options, choices and ways of coping. My job is to come alongside my clients as they face life's challenges and find resolutions or simply peace.

Supervision & training
I offer integrative clinical supervision for counsellors, holding a National Counselling Society Certificate in Supervision and providing a safe space to explore working and growing as practitioners. I would aim to be able to encourage supervisees in expressing their needs and increasing their self-awareness as a therapist, particularly in areas such as how; style, personality, authenticity, and modality can impact on the therapy they offer. I believe it is important to be able to bring all of you to supervision, as all of you can affect your work with clients.View supervision profile
