About me

I offer both short and long-term therapy to individuals and my intention is to help you to find a way forward whatever your issues may be. You will be able to talk about anything in a confidential space, knowing that I will not be judging or criticising you. I am a friendly, calm and warm person and I am curious about your unique experience and outlook.

I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, which means that I can adapt my way of working to meet your needs, time-frame and personality. Together we create a supportive environment through which you can make sense of your circumstances, even when they may feel overwhelming. Sometimes it will be important to talk about your past to understand where patterns of behaviour first started and sometimes it is helpful to use creative methods, like working with stones and shells in order to help you to talk about what is going on. I bring an holistic approach so that we can think about any aches or pains, fears or other sensations that you may be carrying in your body.

I have worked with people from a range of backgrounds and for a number of different charities and organisations. I have a lot of experience of working with bereavement and loss. For several years I have also been working with university students, including mature students, and have valued the opportunity of accompanying them through an important time of transition. I most regularly see clients facing stress, anxiety, panic, loss, anger, stuckness and clients who would like to work through traumatic experiences (perhaps from childhood). This list is not exhaustive and if you would like to speak more on the phone about why you are seeking counselling and to get a sense of whether I might be the right therapist for you, please get in touch. When I first meet a client I like to get more of an idea of what brings you to therapy at this time and at the end of this first session we can decide whether we would like to work together.

I look forward to hearing from you.
