About me and my therapy practice

The thought of therapy can often be a daunting prospect to consider and choosing the right counsellor is the important decision to make on this journey. I value individual difference, integrity, honesty and strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I have an empathic and warm approach which enable’s you to explore any difficulties in a non-judgmental and accepting environment.

Talking can help you learn more about yourself or help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings, enabling you to see things from a different perspective and feel better able to move onwards more positively. People look for counselling for many different reasons, whether it be to work through some emotional problems or when they are experiencing difficulty that they are struggling to work through on their own.

I am a highly experienced Integrative Counsellor who adheres to BACP Code of Ethics. I studied in many different approaches such as Person Centered, Humanistic, CBT and Psychodynamic Counselling. This means I am able to adapt different approaches dependant on clients needs. I have many year’s experience working within the substance misuse sector, experience working in doctor’s surgeries, women’s refuge and also privately. I value individual difference, integrity, honesty and strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers.

I work with people who experience many different issues ranging from low moods and / or depression, loss, addictions, anxiety, anger, ADHD, experiencing domestic abuse, trauma and low self esteem.

I am not a fixer and I don’t have all the answers, I know that I can sit with people in chaos, I can work with stuckness and am not afraid to walk into a dark place with you.
