About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor. Through the many years of study and experience, enables me the advantage of offering a wide range of approaches such as Person Centred, Humanistic, CBT and Psychodynamic Counselling.

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

Having many years’ experience working within the substance misuse sector, it has given me the tools and knowledge to work with clients on many different levels tailored to each individual’s needs. I have counselling experience working both in private and public healthcare sector. I worked on a voluntary basis for charity organisations, including domestic abuse, anxiety, phobias and anger/rage issues. I also have experience of working in Doctors Surgeries and privately.

As a qualified therapist, I have an empathic and warm approach which helps you to explore your difficulties in a non-judgmental and accepting environment. An environment that allows you the opportunity to talk about any issues that you want to work through.

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 I’m not afraid to walk into a dark place with you.
