About me

Despite our ability to take on most of  life’s challenges, we can all have times when our normal coping mechanisms become overwhelmed. Clients have found that I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to explore and reflect on whatever issues or problems they might bring.   Whether the trigger for seeking help is a one-off event or simply feeling ‘stuck’ in one’s life, I believe that counselling or psychotherapy can offer us the opportunity to gain a better understanding of how we function in the world and through self-reflection, increase our ability to cope with whatever life presents, as well as enriching our enjoyment of life and relationships with others.

"When someone really hears you without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mould you, it feels damn good... It's astonishing how confusions that seem irremediable turn into relatively clear streams when one is heard." Carl Rogers

At times like these it can be good to find someone to talk to, maybe someone who is outside of your immediate circle of family or friends.

This is where I, as a counsellor, can help. I have experience of working with individuals (adults and young adults) in both short- and long-term therapy.

About Me

My desire to become a counsellor came at a fairly young age, when I had the sense that sometimes, it feels like there is nobody to talk to, no matter how many people you have around you.

Eventually I decided to apply for a job within a counselling department for a local authority, where then I was asked to consider if I would like to gain a qualification as a counsellor. Four years later, after a lot of academic and personal work I became a qualified counsellor, doing the very job I have wanted to do since I was a teenager.

I am a BACP Registered integrative counsellor, which means that I am listed on the BACP accredited voluntary register.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I incorporate a number of different schools of thought into my practice including:

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
Person centred
The therapy is tailored according to the needs of the client. I work with individuals in short and long term therapy.

Through exploration therapy hopes to enable us to live a more fulfilling life and reach our full potential in the face of life's challenges.
