I consider myself a warm and caring person who is here to walk along-side you in whatever journey you are on, holding safe, quiet and confidential sessions in a peaceful environment, to provide you with the support you need.
I am trained as an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist which means I can adapt our time to your individual needs To be an effective therapist we must build a trusting therapeutic relationship with our client, which is why our time together is with you the client in mind.
I am a registered member of the BACP. I have years of experience working in many different disciplines of therapy. I believe that for one to experience a greater sense of self we need to be connected to our Mind, Body, Emotions and Soul. I hope that I am someone that you feel comfortable enough to walk alongside with you when you explore your issues.
As a trained Integrative Counsellor, I will adapt our sessions using therapeutic methods that work best for you. I am able to work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, and self-harm to name a few. I have specialist training and experience of working with people who are experienced with loss, bereavement, self-harm, and abuse. Therapy sessions are generally centered on a humanistic approach which means that there is no pressure to visit the past but instead focus on how I can help you to navigate the present.
