About me and my therapy practice

I'm an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist which means I can offer a range of therapies rather than one approach to support your need. I offer a friendly, non judgemental, confidential and safe space for you to be heard and begin your counselling journey. I understand can be daunting. and sometimes talking to friends and family is not enough or too close. Having your space and working together we can gain a new perspective, a new understanding and find ways to tackle issues which will empower you to change negative behaviour patterns.

I have extensive experience working with clients who have suffered abuse, including recovering from narcissistic, controlling or co dependent relationships , which can include family too. The result of these can mean suffering the effects of trauma, low self worth and confidence and of course loss .

My other expertise lies with working with Anxiety, OCD , BPD and eating disorders as these often derive as the safe behaviours from childhood or adult trauma.

My background in education also means I am qualified to work with young people and families.

You will have the answers and I will work collaboratively to help you unlock these, gain clarity as well as give you the tools to enable you to get you where you would like to be. I will help you to find a new sense of confidence and autonomy to change negative behaviours.

Being an Integrative Counsellor allows me to use a range of concepts to tailor your therapy using CBT and DBT but it is the Personal centred approach which puts you first, allowing you the space to be heard. Together, we can explore whatever difficulties you are experiencing to get to you to a happier you. If you feel you would work well with honesty, warmth and openness then I may be the counsellor for you.

Please call to have chat to see how we can work together to help make that positive change happen.
