I am trained as a Counsellor using a humanistic and integrative approach, meaning that I can blend different philosophies and theoretical models to suit you and your needs as an individual. I have a flexible approach and can draw on aspects of psychodynamic, CBT and relational therapy in exploring what best helps you in terms of working towards the results you want to achieve.
I have a long-term interest in Psychology, having gained an Honours degree in 2001. My belief is that every individual has inside them the capacity for change. My role as your counsellor is to walk alongside you, in collaboration, to help you explore your inner world and find the answers and resources within yourself to help bring about those changes.
I have experience in working with issues such as loss & bereavement, grief, depression, anxiety, fertility issues, anger, body image anxieties, relationship issues, self-esteem, and self-harm to name a few.
Since qualifying I have set up a small private practice, and have also worked within the NHS. I also volunteer for the national charity Stamp Out Suicide.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and fully embrace the ethical framework in my practice.
