About

As an Accredited Integrative Counsellor I understand that you are unique. No matter what you are going through in these uncertain times, I will be there for you. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, phobias, depression, trauma, PTSD, bereavement, stress, low self esteem and much more. I aim to provide a warm, accepting environment that is confidential and safe. Developing a supportive, non-judgmental relationship to facilitate self understanding, new insights and to help individuals find new ways of being. I work with adults and young adults providing long or short term therapy.
I have 12 years counselling experience, short term with Anxiety and Depression within NHS services and longer term within my private practice and community charities. My approach is a humanistic one, providing Rogers core conditions while using useful tools like CBT, mindfulness, TFT tapping and EMDR (in training)
If you are looking on this site you much be suffering or going through a difficult time right now? Whatever you are going through you do not have to be alone! Counselling can help you through the dark times and I would be honored to support you find new insights, make changes and to find your full potential as that wonderful unique person that you are!
