About me and my therapy practice

I offer face to face & online counselling for individuals & couples. I have been practicing as a fully-qualified counsellor for over 11 years & have experience of working with a broad range of people, from all walks of life.

I aim to create a safe, non-judgemental space for my clients where they can explore all aspects of themselves, from working through specific issues such as anxiety, stress & long-term health conditions to working with the complexity of long-held trauma, issues with identity & deep-seated lack of self-belief.

I love to learn, to work with all sorts of different people & to draw on my life experiences to support clients in a way that is most useful & meaningful for them. My core approach is person-centred. My training & on-going life learning helps me integrate other approaches where it feels helpful - such as goal-orientated coaching.

I base my work on the belief that we all have within us the resources for growth, & capacity to have a meaningful life. I find meaning in helping people understand themselves better – understand why they may feel the way they feel, think what they think, & do the things they do. Through this understanding comes greater self-acceptance, self-care & self-belief.

In addition to counselling, I have experience in leadership development, organisational culture & helping organisations through change. I have supported staff through difficult issues, both personal & work-related, & understand the stresses & challenges that can happen at work and how these can impact all aspects of your life.

I receive regular Supervision with a BACP accredited supervisor in order to maintain a high standard of work. I am a registered member of the BACP & am bound by its code of ethics.
