About me and my therapy practice

I have a range of experience of working with adults and children who have found themselves in vulnerable positions.

I am here to listen to you and provide you with wholehearted empathy so that you can work through what is going on for you.

I have experience of working in two Secondary School's as a School counsellor, working with both children and adults, where I helped clients with a range of issues such as; relationship issues, feeling sad, generalised anxiety, low self esteem, phobias, self harm, sexuality, autism, bereavement, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, stress, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction, and suicidal ideation.

I am experienced in domestic abuse and trauma counselling. I have worked and trained with clients with a range of issues such as; emotional abuse, coercive control, physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, and psychological abuse.

I have thorough knowledge and experience of supporting people who are working 12 step programmes such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, CODA, Narcotics Anonymous and Overeaters Anonymous.

I also have a vast experience in working with eating disorders, anger management, sex problems, sexuality, dissociation, relationship problems, sexual abuse, anxiety, depression, alongside many other presenting issues that I have included below.

I have been trained to work Integratively, which means that I combine different approaches. Everyone has different needs and by using an integration of different therapeutic approaches, you can get the most out of your personal counselling experience.

I work both time limited and open ended, something we would discuss during your assessment.

If you feel that I may be the right counsellor for you, please contact me via email or phone for a free initial phone assessment or further information. I am always happy to help. I look forward to hearing from you.
