About me and my therapy practice

My training and practice is an integrative and relational approach to counselling and psychotherapy. 

Throughout our lives we all experience difficulties and challenges. Individuals may wish to change aspects of themselves they are not happy about and see counselling as an opportunity for self-development. Counselling can be an extremely powerful tool to help us become more aware of who we are and gain a better understanding about our relationships with others and the situations we find ourselves in. It can help you figure out what’s wrong and troubling you, if you are experiencing feelings and behaviours you are unsure of and where they are coming from. We may sadly experience trauma and loss which can bring a lot of difficult emotions. I am here to help you explore your distressing feelings and create positive change in your life. I provide a safe, confidential, non judgmental environment to work through any difficulties you may be experiencing. Guiding you with empathy and compassion to provide you with the insights you need to help explore your emotions.

Once we bring to light the root of the problem, you will be free to find a newer, more positive outlook on your past, present and future. This will result in improved relationships, greater self-esteem and awareness and a consideration of different life choices. You will also gain the tools to help you deal with any obstacle that comes your way. Together we can find a way forward so that you can lead a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

I have experience in helping people with the loss of premature babies, stillborn babies and multiple pregnancy baby loss supporting them through their trauma. I have worked in a secondary school for Place2be. Seeking out counselling takes courage, therefore I provide a free 15 minute telephone consultation prior to progressing to sessions.
