About me and my therapy practice

Counselling provides an opportunity for people facing difficult challenges in their lives to talk through their feelings and be empowered to find their own solutions in a safe and relaxed environment and at a pace, they are comfortable with. I listen to people empathetically in a non-judgemental manner to assist them to look at their problems.

I am an integrative counsellor with the person-centred approach as my core theoretical model drawing from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (exploring how thoughts, feelings and behaviours are interconnected through a series of focused, goal-oriented intervention techniques) and elements of Psychodynamic therapy (exploring childhood experiences that shapes personality in terms of conscious and unconscious desires and/or beliefs).

I counsel adults (18+) and have experience in working with clients with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, stress and relationship issues amongst others. I have experience working with brief, short-term therapy of up to 6-10 sessions and more long-term open-ended therapy.

I am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work to the highest professional standards in accordance with the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions 

I am covered by professional indemnity insurance and committed to professional supervision and ongoing training.
