I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist registered with the HCPC and the British Psychological Society. I offer both short-term, goal-oriented counselling as well as longer term psychological therapy.
Feelings of low self-esteem, anxiety and depression can be debilitating, and managing the complexities of personal and professional relationships can feel overwhelming. The therapeutic process offers a space in which to gain meaningful insight and work towards living a more fulfilling life. My aim is to provide a safe, empathic and confidential environment in which to help each person find the best way of dealing with the circumstances and experiences that cause them distress.
My approach is to work collaboratively with each individual in a way that is sensitive to their ambitions for personal growth and change. I enjoy working in a creative manner and developing a bespoke treatment for each individual client. I'm committed to developing a strong therapeutic relationship that emphasises respect, acceptance and understanding.
