About me and my therapy practice

If you are having problems in your life, finding the space and time to understand them is often difficult. I can help with this, providing you a confidential place to talk through the things worrying you.

Everyone is unique; each person’s situation different. I will work with you, helping you to understand your feelings and thoughts about what is proving difficult. From this you will have the opportunity to look at things differently.

I can help you explore how you came to be who you are. Together we can find out what has influenced your life, the things you like and dislike about yourself. So that you can decide what you might want to change and how this might be done. The counselling I provide will give you a safe place to do this.

I work in an integrative way, bringing ideas from attachment theory; transactional analysis and cognitive behavioural therapy into a person centred approach that will help you find a way of understanding yourself in a language that feels right for you. I have worked with people experiencing difficulties with their thoughts and feelings in many different situations. I am a highly qualified and experienced counsellor, working with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2009 and started my Private Practice in 2011. Prior to this I had been working as a counsellor in a charitable agency supporting people with mental health issues.
