I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered and accredited counsellor with 15 year of experience supporting people with emotional and psychological issues. I divide my time working in private practice and alongside other organisations providing counselling and clinical supervision support to clients and frontline workers including counsellors.
I have extensive experience of working with, assessing and supporting people from many backgrounds whose difficulties range from anxiety and depression to child sexual abuse and domestic abuse.
Self-esteem, lack of confidence, anxiety, depression self-harm, trauma and bereavement and relationship concerns are just some of the challenges people bring when contacting me for support.
Every person is unique and as an integral therapist I tailor my approach to meet each individual’s personal need. I teach self-help techniques from a combination of approaches including mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT), therapeutic imagery and other creative strategies and have extensive experience in providing different strategies and techniques to help a person understand their difficulty and help manage the often-difficult moments that can manifest when someone is struggling
Seeking support can often feel daunting and is a big step for most people to take, I can offer you a safe, supportive and confidential space. To help you decide if you would like to work with me, I offer all new clients a complimentary 20-minute initial session where you can ask me any questions about the process and how I work.
Please see my page for some ideas around managing anxiety and trauma using grounding techniques.
