I am a BACP Accredited, Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, with a flexible way of working that is tailored to suit your individual needs and circumstances. My approach is fundamentally ‘person-centred’ and as such I aim to be non-judgemental and respectful of the individuality of each client, offering a safe place to talk. I have also studied and trained extensively in a range of approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Approach, Solution-Focused Therapy and Existential Psychotherapy, which may be incorporated into our work together as appropriate. I’m a warm and friendly person, easy to talk to and passionate about the work I do.

I have substantial experience of working with both adults and young people on a whole range of personal issues, including:

  • Abuse
  • Anxiety and ‘anxiety disorders’
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Death anxiety
  • Depression
  • Identity issues
  • Life ‘crisis’ or loss of direction/purpose
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (which includes intrusive, unwanted thoughts as well as ritualistic, obsessive behaviours)
  • Panic attacks
  • Personal development and personal dilemmas
  • Problematic anger
  • Relationship issues
  • Work issues
  • Self-esteem and confidence issues
  • Self harm
  • Stress
