About Me

I believe that counselling is a collaborative process and that once we have identified what you need, we can work together to make sense of your situation. From here you will be able to consider the best way forward.


I am a qualified integrative humanistic counsellor. This means that I use a range of different approaches, which allows me to be flexible to the needs of my clients. My core approach is Person Centred, but I also use CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), TA (Transactional Analysis) and Psychodynamic modalities. These allow us to explore your feelings in the present and the past, and how they may affect relationships, behaviour and thoughts.



I have experience working in agencies with young people (ages 11-21) and adult clients. My background is in education, and this has allowed me many opportunities to help staff, students and parents with a wide range of issues. I have volunteered with an agency counselling young people and adults, a Therapeutic Horticulture charity, and currently supervise for and volunteer with a Rape Crisis agency.


I am a Senior Professionally Accredited member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) and adhere to their code of ethics and good practice. I also have full public liability insurance and an enhanced DBS certificate.
