About me

Why choose counselling?

Counselling provides clients with a safe, supportive and confidential space to talk to a trained professional about problems and concerns. As a counsellor, I will help you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you develop a clearer understanding of yourself and others. 

I abide by the ethical framework of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means I am committed to continual professional development and regular supervision to ensure I can offer excellence in my practice.

I am trained to work both short and long term and during an initial consultation, we would discuss what you feel would be most appropriate and helpful.

My Experience

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar, borderline personality disorder, dissociative identity disorder, self harm, suicidal ideation, fractured relationships, abuse, bullying, bereavement and loss.

I have also worked in supportive roles with children and vulnerable people and have a particular affinity for building strong relationships with young people based on trust and mutual respect.

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” – C.G. Jung.
“One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.” – Sigmund Freud.

I have lived and worked in many different countries and have extensive experience of different cultures, lifestyles, languages and people. Consequently, I have a genuine interest and understanding of people from all walks of life which helps me to see and appreciate each client as a unique individual.

I have experienced the power of counselling in my own life and am motivated by a firm belief that everyone has the capacity within them for growth and change.
