About

I offer one to one counselling with a warm, genuine and non-judgemental approach, with the therapeutic relationship at the heart of the work we achieve together. I work long, medium and short term and I am committed to supporting you to work towards your goals. I am able to work with both adults, children and young people and through a range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, issues around sexuality, identity, relationships, abuse, health and bereavement, stress and work related issues. I work face to face and through online mediums also.
I have 10 years experience working with children and young people within schools and more recently NHS and adults in private practice. I am qualified integratively , which means I am able to draw together different theories depending which I feel is most suitable for the work we are undertaking. I hold an enhanced DBS and full liability insurance. .
Getting the right fit with a counsellor where you feel comfortable and not judged is probably the most important first step to achieving your goals. It can be scary but please feel free to contact me for a free initial conversation either in person or by phone and we can look at how I can best support you.
