About me and my therapy practice

 I am a highly experienced, genuine and caring Counsellor with a natural ability to put you at your ease and help you with your emotional wellbeing.

 Approachable and discreet, I work within an Integrative framework, which combines CBT, Humanistic/Person Centered and Psychodynamic methodology. 

I also have a keen interest in the use of creative methods, as I believe that the unconscious mind holds a lot of answers. I have extensive experience of counselling within a vast range of counselling environments.

 I have trained in working therapeutically with L.G.B.T.Q. clients and pride myself in practicing in an L.G.B.T.Q. affirmative way. I also offer therapy for children aged 04-11 and have worked as a primary school counsellor.

If you choose to see me on a confidential "face to face" basis, I offer a warm, safe and comfortable environment and surroundings, where you will not be judged or criticised.

 We are all unique and I aim to provide a bespoke service that is tailored towards your individual needs, adapting my experience, expertise and training in order to help you find the way forward. 

 Living with the demands and cut and thrust of today's hectic world I understand that sometimes we can lose our sense of who we are. I aim to assist in helping find the 'you' once more. I believe that it is 'you' that matters. 

Communicating is the first step towards healing. It is one of the hardest steps to take, but once taken, it can become one of the greatest. You can do it.
