About Me

I am a qualified integrative counsellor working in private practice. As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I abide by their Code of Ethics. Many professionals are required to work ethically, however in counselling this means we put our respect of the client’s individual values, experiences and process of change at the forefront of the therapeutic relationship.

I offer you a safe, supportive space to explore whatever problems and issues you want to bring to counselling. I have experience of counselling on a wide range of issues including relationship difficulties/endings, gender and sexuality, trauma, addiction and abuse.

I believe that, given the right conditions, we can all find a way out of our difficulties and through our pain, to find a place in the world where we are comfortable. At times, it may feel impossible to see a way forward and believe that things can get better.  As a counsellor, I listen and try to understand the difficulties from your point of view. This can help you see things more clearly, understand more about yourself and 'move on' from difficult and painful experiences

Our work together might be short term, perhaps a few sessions working towards a specific goal, or longer term, perhaps exploring painful issues that have been there for a long time. Whatever feels right for you.

Counselling offers an opportunity for you to talk through the difficulties that might be causing you emotional and psychological distress and that you might find difficult to manage on your own. Working through these issues in therapy may be daunting but, as an experienced counsellor,  this is where I can help.
