About me and my therapy practice
It can sometimes be helpful to talk through a problem with a professional counsellor in a confidential and safe environment.
Some people use counselling to change something specific in their lives or have a particular issue they want to resolve. Others have a sense of wanting to explore different aspects of themselves to better understand their feelings and actions.
Coming to counselling allows you space to talk and work out how you can make the changes you would like to see in your life. Many people find that the most helpful part of coming to counselling is being able to speak to someone who will listen without judging.
I value individual differences and see the collaborative relationship between client and counsellor as central to understanding, finding a way forward and increasing a sense of wellbeing.
I welcome clients from all backgrounds and offer a warm, supportive and flexible approach.
I’m an accredited member or the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work in accordance with their ethical guidelines and professional standards for practice.
I’m trained in several therapeutic approaches, including Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.
I’ve been a qualified counsellor for more than 22 years, working for several national children’s agencies, community and mental health organisations, schools and voluntary sector agencies. I work in partnership with clients to deliver therapy in creative, flexible ways that take into account all the various aspects of, and influences on, a person’s life.
I’m happy to work with a wide range of client experiences including – but not limited to – abuse, anxiety, bereavement, bullying, low mood and depression, post-termination issues, stress, panic attacks, self-harming behaviour, sexuality, identity and problems associated with loss or change.
