About

I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space. Building a therapeutic relationship is important for my practice. I've been trained to work as an integrative counsellor - that means I can offer person-centered, humanistic, CBT and psychodynamic techniques depending on the client need. I normally offer an assessment appointment and then we agree a plan of the work we will do and how many sessions may be needed. I'm an Accredited member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework. I'm also an Accredited member of the NCS. I have provided around 2000 client sessions working with both adults and young people (11-18 yrs).
Life can be so busy and relentless. Many people struggle with the demands of daily life and the problems that can pose. My client work includes working with bereavement, anxiety, addiction, low self-esteem/ self-worth and boundary issues. Sometimes just sitting talking in a quiet space can make a world of difference.
Through a combination of six years training and much life experience, I find it's quite a natural thing for me to step into the client's shoes and experience their world. The empathy and congruence that flows from this can have great benefits for healing and the therapeutic relationship.
