About Me

I am an experienced counsellor offering a safe, friendly, comfortable and confidential space, in which together, we can explore your thoughts and feelings, and the effects these may be having upon your life.

As well as being professionally qualified with a degree in Integrative Counselling, I am also an individual member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I am committed to working safely and ethically, and regularly add to my professional development in ways such as CPD courses, research, reading, and regular supervision, in order to give the best service for my clients. 

 

As an Integrative Practitioner, my theoretical orientation is built upon a person centred core, incorporating both psycho-dynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy. I draw upon all three of these main approaches in order to create a tailor made therapy which will best suit the needs of each client. I hold a strong belief that each individual is unique, therefore your sessions should be too.

In addition to private practice, my experience also includes working within a Cat B males prison as an in house counsellor, volunteering for a domestic abuse charity, working with victims of abuse, both current and historical, and working within the NHS. 

I have a background in care, in particular mental health, learning disabilities and dementia. 

 

Issues I have worked with include:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Social Anxiety

  • Abuse

  • Historical Abuse

  • Bullying

  • Stress

  • Divorce

  • Seperation

  • Low self esteem

  • Health anxiety

  • Bereavement

  • Misuse of drug and alcohol

  • Post natal depression / anxiety

  • Family breakdowns

  • Autistic spectrum

  • Carers

  • Addictions

 

Above all, I hold the therapeutic relationship at the heart of our work together. I understand therapy can be a big step that is not always easy therefore, my aim is to provide a trusting and safe place where you will be listened to without judgement and supported in your journey of growth, awareness, development and change.

 

I look forward to meeting you and would feel privileged to walk beside you on your pathway to a more enhanced life.
