Biography


I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

My approach to counselling is integrated, meaning that I can work with a combination of theories, Person Centred counselling underpins all of my work, especially when working on an emotional level with my clients. I also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and other Humanistic based therapies. I practice both short and long term counselling, regularly review goals along the way, often with short term work I have found that solution based theory is most beneficial.

I provide an accepting environment where you can talk about yourself and express your worries and concerns. Together we will explore, identify and start to understand the possible causes of your difficulties. We will begin to make sense of what's going on in your life and start to develop ways of thinking and behaving to enable you to live your life more fully.

I am committed to creating an open and trusting relationship with you, in order to help you break free from different limitations. My aim is to assist you achieve your goals, explore different options, resolve past issues, enable resolution and progress forward with confidence.

Why Counselling?
People come to see a counsellor for all sorts of reasons. You may be aware that you are suffering from anxiety and/or depression and know that you need counselling to resolve things. But, there are many other reasons for seeing a therapist. You may be clear about what you want from therapy or you may only know that you need support from someone who isn't a friend or family member. It could be that you are feeling overwhelmed by a recent crisis or that a long term problem isn't getting any better. You may be feeling that things from your past are holding you back or that you are stuck in a rut and unable to think of a way out of it on your own. Or you may just know that something isn't right even if you can't quite identify what the problem is.
