About Me

My approach

 I believe that any individual knows themselves better than anyone else and is in the best position to know what they want or need. Sometimes it takes a little time and effort to identify what that looks and feels like. Counselling is a very effective way of doing this.  

I will work with you at your pace to support you to explore the person you are and what is going on for you right now.   I aim to provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore challenging experiences, thoughts and feelings, always with your wellbeing in mind. Together we can explore how you want to move forward. You will be at the heart of our work.

My training is in person-centred counselling, a humanistic approach. I have particular experience in short term, focussed work.

For the past few years, I have carried out extensive counselling work with CRUSE, the bereavement charity, on a voluntary basis.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
