About

I provide a bespoke, authentic, safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment for clients to share their concerns with complete autonomy. The counselling process is unique in its ability to offer a therapeutic relationship by supporting the client whilst they explore their own expertise of the self and helping them to find an understanding of what the self looks like. The therapeutic process is a process that enables the client to set boundaries, gain autonomy, enhance self-awareness, increase the ability to self-soothe, understand patterns of behaviours, build confidence in decision making and identify self needs.
I am an NHS counsellor of the Integrative modality which is an approach integrating both the schools of Psychodynamic and Humanistic theories, I typically lean towards the Person-Centred approach integrating elements of the Psychodynamic. The integrated approach equips me with a broad knowledge base and skill set to meet client needs.
I am a counsellor in with a practical broad life experience who is able to translate the understanding into practice affording clients with an authentic empathic understanding without judgement and autonomy. The time spent is about the client and meeting their needs to enable them to face life challenges and still function on a day-to-day basis.
