About me and my therapy practice
There are times when we all need extra support to cope with life’s inevitable challenges which can present themselves in many different ways. My role is to support you in finding your own way forward in coping with these challenges and to help you make sense of any thoughts or feelings that you wish to bring, or which may emerge during our work together. I have over 10 years experience as a qualified counsellor supporting adults and young people with varying emotional difficulties, in a wide range of settings.
I offer both short term or long term counselling and work in an integrative way, which means that my practice is influenced by the traditions of humanistic, psychodynamic and existential therapies; this enables me to tailor my approach to suit your individual needs, whilst respecting your own pace and depth of the counselling process. The core aspect of all of my work is to build a supportive and trusting relationship, and to offer a confidential and compassionate space, without judgement, where you can feel comfortable in exploring any thoughts or feelings that may be difficult to share with others.
I feel passionately about my role as a counsellor and have enjoyed working in a many different settings, including mental health charities, carers’ organisations, the NHS and the education sector. I have extensive experience of supporting children, young people and parents/carers having managed a school counselling service and previously taught children and young people with learning difficulties.
