I currently have evening appointments available. We all experience difficulties in our lives, and sometimes we can feel overwhelmed, stuck or struggle to make changes to relieve our distress or problems. Meeting with a counsellor can help you talk about your story, opening up new opportunities to see yourself separate from your problems. By gaining a better understanding of the self you can bring an alternative story out of the shadows, which could empower you to make changes and improve your relationships. I have over 20 years’ experience working with people with mental health difficulties, and currently work in the NHS.

My core approach is person centred; which means I will support you to gain an understanding of your difficulties from your perspective, and together find ways to move forward and reach your goals. I am trained in gestalt, psychodynamic and transactional analysis models; and also have experience in compassion focused and mindfulness approaches.

I offer short or long-term counselling, and together we will regularly review our sessions. During sessions I may invite you to work creatively using symbols, or suggest we do some art work to explore your feelings; creativity can be an opportunity to explore past, present or perceived future difficulties. This will be a suggestion and always your choice.
