About Me

I will do everything I can to enable you to feel fully understood, accepted and not judged. I will offer you a safe and secure place to explore what is going on for you - helping you to recognise your own potential and further your personal growth. I use a combined approach to counselling and therapy, it is called integrative counselling, which just means I use different elements from various therapies to ensure our work is meaningful and effective. Integrative counsellors do not feel there is one single approach that can work for everyone. So when I work with you, I may be using a range of approaches and techniques depending on what is needed at the time.
 

Here is a list of areas I regularly work with in my private practice; I have worked with many other issues in addition to this list and I am open to working with any issue or reason you may have for seeking counselling.


  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depression and suicidal feelings
  • Anger
  • Shame
  • Communication and relationship difficulties
  • Abuse 
  • Identity
  • Grief/loss
  • Relationship problems
  • Sexuality and sex
  • Parenthood
  • Post-natal depression
  • Addictions, specifically drug and alcohol addiction
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Mental health
  • Childhood trauma
  • Stress
  • Self-harm
  • Issues relating to body image and eating
  • Problems at work
  • Infant Loss


I feel it is important to tailor the counselling sessions to suit the needs of the individual, working with creativity, compassion and consideration.


I have my own experience of counselling and understand the courage it takes to reach out for support- so by reading this you have made the first
