About Me

I am a Registered and Accredited BACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist.  I use an Integrative approach which means that I utilise different skills to meet your exact needs.  I offer a kind, compassionate and relaxed space for you to talk freely about you and your concerns.  We work together to find the best approach to help you to feel better, whatever is troubling you.   Whether this is understanding behaviours, feelings and actions, exploring problems in relationships (personal or work), learning new ways to reduce your anxiety and improve depression, coming to terms with grief and loss, improving confidence and self-esteem or processing your trauma, I will be there with you throughout the process.  I have considerable experience and additional training in Individual Counselling, Relationship / Couples therapy, EMDR and Rewind technique for a wide range of issues.

My Experience

I have 11 years’ experience in Counselling individuals.  My style of counselling is integrative which incorporates various methods of counselling to suit the client’s needs.  I am also a trained Couples and Relationships Counsellor, an EMDR Practitioner (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) specifically for trauma, CISM (Critical Incident Support Management), Clinical Supervisor and Rewind Practitioner.

I have considerable experience in working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, confidence, relationship issues, grief and loss, trauma and much more.

I work with deep compassion and encourage self-compassion in my clients to help them to deal with their issues and concerns.  We explore what might by underlying the problems to gain a deeper understanding.  We will explore alternative perspectives, potential solutions, acceptance , choices or changes.  We work together at your own pace, with respect and validation, without any fear of judgement.

My Approach

I incorporate a number of counselling skills to work in an integrative way, which means that I can use a variety of counselling skills to match your needs.  I am also trained in EMDR, Couples and Relationship Counselling which are additional skills which help me to help you.

I offer kindness, warmth and compassion whilst focussing sharply on what matters to you and how we might work together to achieve the outcome that you would like from counselling.  This is your personal therapy and your goals matter.
