About me and my therapy practice

As a registered BACP counsellor, I am fully qualified as a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor with many years’ experience working with adults and teenagers.

Integrative counselling understands the connection between mind, body and spirit. This approach looks at your past, present and future, changing unhealthy patterns in your life

I believe we all have the capacity to move beyond our fears and challenges. Through gaining insight and compassion we can feel more confident within ourselves and as such more satisfied within our lives.

My approach to counselling and therapy is first to create a place of safety. Safety is the condition that enables us to explore conscious and unconscious issues together. I support personal inquiries at ever increasing depth to accomplish healing and continuous growth through the relationship. Healing leads to a space of self-discovery and new possibilities in life.

I am trained to listen, reflect and motivate, which provides a unique opportunity to gain a fresh perspective. It is important to feel accepted and understood for whom you really are and to this aim, I provide a supportive environment for self-discovery.

I offer a friendly and modern approach to dealing with the struggles of life today. Within my working practice clients often report feeling calmer and more confident within themselves having gained clarity around the challenges and difficulties they have been experiencing. I also show clients techniques to deal with anxiety, unhelpful thoughts and compulsive behaviour.

My Practice is convenient for BH6 and BH23 postcodes and beyond.
