I provide a warm, collaborative, and compassionate approach to therapy. With over 16 years’ experience of counselling people from a wide range of ages and diverse backgrounds, I aim to offer counselling that helps you to work through whatever challenges you are currently experiencing in life and reflect on any changes you may have been thinking about. For example, you may be experiencing a life situation which feels overwhelming or challenging. Perhaps you are struggling with bereavement, loss, low self-esteem, anxiety or depression, or difficulties in a relationship. Together we can explore your feelings in a safe, confidential space, helping you to find fresh perspectives and a way forward.
My early training was in Adlerian Individual Psychology where encouragement and hope are at the core of the counselling relationship. I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor. This is an approach which acknowledges that individuals are unique, and that life experiences are different for everyone. As an Integrative therapist, I draw on different approaches to meet your individual needs.
I am a BACP Senior Accredited and Registered member of the BACP and abide by the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions 2018.
I am also a Level 2 Professional Member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy online (ACTO).
If you have made the decision that now is the right time to talk to a counsellor, you have made the first step in gaining a better understanding of yourself and the difficulties you are dealing with. I aim to offer counselling that provides a supportive and confidential space for you to talk about whatever has been troubling you without judgement. Together we can work towards helping you to manage or resolve your difficulties and to help you move forward. For more information see here.
I am a qualified and experienced Supervisor working with Counsellors and other Health Professionals who are working with adults or young people over the age of 18. I have also supervised many counsellors working in Higher Education and have extensive working knowledge of counselling and supervision in this sector. The relationship with your Supervisor is an important one and I aim to provide an open and collaborative working relationship to help you feel supported in your work. For more information see here.
My counselling and supervision appointments are all online via Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
If this is new to you, don't be put off, online counselling and supervision works well for many people and offers the benefit of being able to attend appointments from your own home.
If you would like to find out how this might work, or, to find out more about counselling with me, I offer a 20-minute consultation at no charge.
