I have a natural ability to empathise with my clients and am able to offer the support they need whilst working together to find tailor-made solutions.

Before training to be a therapist at the University of Surrey, I worked in management and Human Resources. I currently hold a post teaching Psychology.

As a humanistic therapist my aim is to provide a therapeutic environment which feels safe & supportive, & gives you an opportunity to explore areas of your life & look at how they might be improved.
Sitting in a room or online with someone whom you have only just met, and sharing about yourself is very likely to feel strange or even uncomfortable. However once the counselling room, or the space around you when online, becomes more familiar to you, your counselling experience has the potential to be very valuable. As a qualified therapeutic counsellor I can offer you time set aside just for you; to explore life events; relationships; feelings and emotions; and patterns of behaviour. You know yourself the best, but some feelings and experiences may be buried so deeply they can't be accessed without someone else's support.

I work as an Integrative, humanistic counsellor, predominantly person centred, I also integrate this with Psychodynamic & Transactional Analysis, Where it may be necessary to explore your family of origin in order to work with what is off track.
We seem to live in a complex world. Endless possibilities seem to be competing with contradictions and messages and scripts shouting "you should" or "ought". The collaboration often starts with having the courage to look at the things that may be off-track, particularly if your script dictates that you're "supposed to be happy, perfect and intelligent" to collaborate with a professional. If you're always trying to be "normal" you will never know how amazing you can be! It really is ok to live a life that others do not understand. Talking therapy can help - help you to unpick your problems and understand why you do what you do.

I work using Zoom which allows you to access counselling from your own environment. This cuts out travelling time and may fit into a busy schedule. Even so, I recommend that you allow at least 15 minutes after sessions to think through what we have talked about. There is a need for you to create privacy so that we can speak freely and you are able to gain the most you can from the work we do together. Over the past seventeen years as a qualified counsellor I have helped clients with depression, addiction, codependency, anxiety, recovery from harmful relationships, bereavement and loss, trauma, family dynamics and workplace stress.

Are you experiencing a difficult or challenging time in your life? Perhaps you are feeling stuck and unable to move forward? Whatever your reason for considering therapy and viewing my profile, it is often the case that we 'hit the wall' or 'crash' emotionally before we can identify that we may need professional support. When our usual coping mechanisms no longer work the struggle can be overwhelming. As your therapist I recognise this as your first and critical step toward positive change. You are I'm sure familiar with the phrase 'if you do what you've always done...you get what you've always got' and how true it is.....
