About me and my therapy practice

I qualified as a counsellor in 2011. I am an experienced BACP registered and accredited counsellor MBACP (Accred) and qualified to work with individuals and couples.

People come to therapy with me for lots of different reasons and have found it very helpful in resolving a broad range of personal issues. I work with people who are feeling anxious, stressed, unhappy or are struggling to find their purpose in life. Maybe you feel life is not in your control or you have a difficult time liking yourself? Perhaps something happened long ago that feels unresolved and seems to keep you feeling stuck. You might have had a recent upsetting experience, such as a separation or bereavement, work stress, a health scare or you are having relationship problems and need someone impartial to talk to.

How I work

When you work with me my aim is for you to feel safe and at ease, so you can share your intimate thoughts and problems without judgement. I offer you a warm and authentic space to support you through the challenges you face in a non-judgement way.

I will help you gain insight into your thoughts and feelings and together we will look at new ways of approaching the difficulties or patterns that are preventing you from living in a more fulfilling way. 

Together we can look at the themes and the difficulties in your life that maybe influencing the way you relate to yourself or your partner and other important people in your life.
