Welcome

 

Making the decision to come to counselling can feel overwhelming, you are not alone. You are guaranteed a space to talk freely in a confidential and non-judgemental environment.

My approach is integrative using different counselling therapies to meet your needs;  including (but not limited to) Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Our work will be led by you and the issues that you wish to discuss. Building a strong therapeutic relationship is central to our work together,  it is important that you feel comfortable. Feeling comfortable with a Counsellor is crucial to successful therapeutic development, therefore I offer a free 30 minute online consultation. Sessions are available in-person, online or by phone.

Areas I work with include:

Anxiety & Stress    Relationship Difficulties    Low Self-Esteem    Depression

Childhood Trauma    Bereavement & Loss    Trauma    Suicidal Feelings

Emotional, Physical & Sexual abuse    Family Issues    Separation & Divorce

About Me

My history, which led me into counselling, involved working in a professional ability with Barnardo’s, Women’s Aid and Educational Institutions.  These opportunities provided me with the experience of seeing first-hand the impact on lives (even generations) when no supportive professional psychological support was available. This informed my belief in counselling and psychotherapeutic services and the life changing impact of therapy for those able to access services.

I am committed to delivering ethical and professional support for individuals and businesses. In addition to private practice, I have experience with a number of charitable organisations including ARC , Time to Talk and Time to Heal.

We all benefit from the opportunity to talk freely and honestly without judgement. Making changes in our lives is possible even when it may feel like a mountain ahead of us.

I offer a supportive environment to a diverse range of individuals of varying gender, sexual orientation and cultural heritage.
