About me and my therapy practice

Whether at the start of a therapeutic journey or for further personal development or support, I work collaboratively to help people make sense of how they feel. Often patterns of behaviour develop as our most resourceful way of coping, over time things can change and patterns can become unhelpful. Understanding this can help to free us from feelings of inadequacy or helplessness, we become more self-accepting and able to make choices that nurture us and build resilience. As a counsellor I bear witness to how experiences have impacted people and I provide a safe, confidential atmosphere which facilitates this sensitive exploration. 

I am a senior accredited member of BACP and abide by its ethical framework. I have over 20 years of working as a counsellor in higher education, the NHS, workplace counselling, school counselling and private work. I have also supervised counsellors on placement and in working towards accreditation. My counselling qualifications include: Diploma in Counselling; Masters in Counselling; Certification of Supervision of counsellors; and I have a diploma in hypnobirthing.

Issues that I work with include anxiety, depression; loss, bereavement; health problems; parenting concerns; trauma and abuse; self harm and relationship problems. I also work with people who have experience of trauma, including a traumatic birth, or fears about a forthcoming birth process.
