About

I offer one-to-one counselling with a warm, genuine and non-judgemental approach, with our relationship at the heart of the work we achieve together. I can work long or short-term depending on your needs and am committed to supporting you to work towards your goals. I work with 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, and stress and work-related issues. I have a particular interest in peri/post-natal depression. I work face to face and through online mediums also.
I have 12 yrs experience working with children/young people within schools and the NHS and adults in private practice. I am qualified integratively, meaning I am able to draw together different theories depending which is most suitable for our work. I have experience of working with counsellors in training and teach Level 4 Counselling Diploma students.
I know, for me, getting the right fit with a counsellor where I felt comfortable and accepted was probably the most important part of my search. It can be daunting but please do contact me for an initial conversation by phone/email and hopefully, I can put your mind at rest and we can look at how I can best support you and answer any questions you may have.
