About me and my therapy practice

I'm an approachable person, who is easy to talk too and uses listening skills to hear what you are feeling. I work with many different tools to help each individual and allow you to move at your own pace.

From my experience of life, my awareness and insight into the trials and tribulations of others have equipped me with the necessary tools to empathise with you.

I have a great belief that every individual has the ability to unlock their own internal healing power, supported by the relationship between the Counsellor and client. The aim is to find a more fulfilling way to live your life with confidence and a positive outlook. I believe each person needs to be considered as a whole and I use counselling techniques that are tailored to the individual needs and personal circumstances.

I am a qualified Counsellor, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and adhere to the BACP's code of ethics. I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body.
