I am a professional counsellor with over 14 years experience and during that time I have been privileged to help many people on their road to health both as individuals and in group sessions. Our modern lives can be complicated and we may feel confused or worried by the way we are thinking and feeling. Sometimes it is not always easy to confide in friends or family who are emotionally connected and close to us. I have been trained to create the right conditions to help you talk and explore what is concerning you and find the right way forward.
You may be feeling anxious or sad, having experienced a bereavement, or at a crossroad, wanting to learn more about yourself and to build your self-awareness, confidence and self-worth. As an integrative counsellor I place high importance on developing with you a good therapeutic relationship, and it is important that from the start of our work you feel safe to talk and express yourself in a confidential, supportive and constructive environment. Although the mainstay of my work is relational I am trained in other therapeutic models as well including CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) and TA (Transactional Analysis) which we can draw upon if appropriate during our work together.
