Welcome. It’s a privilege for me to sit alongside clients on their counselling journey and to hear their story as it unfolds. I believe that you are the expert on yourself and that my job is to hold a mirror up so you can see things from a different angle, uncovering answers in the process. I create a warm confidential space, free from judgement, where you feel safe to begin exploring your issues, whether they be personal, professional or relationship based. I will help you develop understanding, self-awareness and coping mechanisms as you decide how to move forward.
I am a fully qualified and experienced Integrative counsellor, and I have worked with a wide range of clients and issues in various counselling services over several years. I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework. My background is in Health and Mental Health, with a career spanning 17 years.
I have a particular interest and passion for working with loss and bereavement, and have Advanced Specialist training status in this with the National Counselling Society. I have previously volunteered as a Bereavement counsellor with Cruse Bereavement Care.
As an Integrative counsellor I tailor the therapy to you, because I understand that everyone is unique. I weave various theories together including Person Centred, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, and Psychodynamic to find the best way of supporting you and meeting your individual needs.
