About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor who can help you to explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours in a safe and professional environment in a way that you feel comfortable with. I draw on a broad range of approaches in order to enable you to reflect and gain insight into the problems you are experiencing, based on your needs as a client. I believe that you have the ability to make positive changes in your life, and that you can develop a clearer understanding of your difficulties and how to overcome them if you are shown empathy, compassion and a non-judgmental approach. This is the foundation of my approach as a counsellor. I have experience of counselling clients across a varied range of issues.

About me and my therapy practice

I am currently completing an Advanced Diploma in Supervision Practice.  I will have completed this by March 2021.

I am an experienced counsellor and also have some previous supervision experience.  The training is to formerly recognise this.

if you would like a supervisor who likes to work in creative ways then we could be a good match.
