I work with individuals (18+) who are seeking to increase their self awareness and to better understand how they think, feel and act. My therapeutic approach can help you take notice of unhelpful relational patterns that feel automatic and cause distress, worry and self doubt. As you progress in therapy, you will feel more able to respond to stressors with greater flexibility and confidence. This frees you up to think and act in a manner that serves your needs better and helps you achieve the sustainable balance you seek.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and a registered member of the BACP. I provide a safe and secure space where you the client feels comfortable to develop your self awareness and to help you on your journey of exploration. Life can be tough and it is not a weakness to seek help from someone who is on the outside and who is not directly involved in your life. Life can be challenging and being able to find someone who you can talk to about your issues without feeling judged is very important.

Before commencing a therapy process I offer a free 20minute consultation. This would invite the opportunity to hear more about your current predicament/s and what has brought you to seek therapy at this point in time, and if or how I might be able to help. It would also enable us to collaboratively discuss what it is you might be looking for if you were to engage in the therapy process. This initial conversation is also a chance for us to get a sense of each other and to assess whether it is a 'fit' going forward.

Hello and welcome, I see you made the first, very important step. You came to realisation you have a problem and that you need professional support. I can help you to specify, name, give a meaning and assist you in your way to recovery of your mental balance while keeping you on the course you chose.I strongly believe that Clients know themselves the best, therefore are the experts of the “knowledge of themselves”; however sometimes they need support to uncover or unblock the inner resources. I encourage taking responsibility for yourself, “can do” attitude to stimulate your mental healing and growth process.

Choosing a professional to help you with your struggles can be a stressful process. Many people have heard of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy but aren’t sure what it involves, and don’t know whether they need CBT, counselling or something else. That’s not a problem - I will provide an initial phone or video consultation to answer questions, listen to your concerns and discuss with you what you are looking for. My first session involves an assessment of your current difficulties from the perspective of a trained mental health professional, and working with you to establish whether CBT or counselling would be most beneficial for you.
