I am an accredited, registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework.
I have worked in a variety of education and private settings in a clinical capacity, for 25 years helping hundreds of people to manage their personal issues more effectively.
I can help you to understand the destructive patterns in your life and where they come from.
I can help you to focus on relationships that work for you.
I can give you tools to manage emotions in more healthy ways.
I can help you feel more empowered.
My training and experience means that I'm able to help with many of life's problems.
I have provided counselling for a multitude of issues including relationship issues, family relationship issues, loss/bereavement, separation/divorce, anxiety/stress, self harm, panic attacks, depression, low self esteem/confidence, work related issues, illness/disability, body image, trauma, helping people to overcome painful times in their lives.
I use a Psychodynamic approach within my practice, which helps us look at how early experiences impact on the here and now in your life. It can be especially helpful for untangling ‘baggage’ which may be holding you back in your current relationships and attitudes to others. Understanding how these patterns are caught up in old hurts, can free you to choose more healthy relationships.
People often report that after working with me, they feel calmer, less anxious, less stressed, sleep better, have improved communication, a better work/life balance, look after themselves more, understand their needs better, make positive changes, learn how to say no and laugh again.
My practice has a calm, peaceful room which is professional and confidential.
