Coronavirus Notice: I am currently offering some face to face sessions, following hygiene and distancing restrictions. I am also offering online sessions via Zoom or WhatsApp video call.
Sometimes in life we may feel lost, struggle with feelings of sadness, depression, worry or anxiety. We may be having difficulty coming to terms with losses in our lives, don't know where to turn in times of trouble or just need someone to listen to and understand us.
I am an integrative counsellor using a person centred core model. This enables me to provide the most appropriate support for your individual needs using a range of counselling theories, models and techniques.
I am also a hypnotherapist, and can provide hypnotherapy as a complete treatment, or incorporate hypnotherapy as an additional tool in counselling if appropriate and agreed.
I provide support for adults, children and young people and have a current Enhanced DBS Certificate.
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and am governed by their code of ethics. You can find full details at: https://www.nationalcounsellingsociety.org/
