How I can help

I am an humanistic integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with over 20 years experience. This means I use the best of a range of approaches that suit each person and their individual and unique needs. Working ethically is central to me and my professionalism and so I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and I adhere to their Code of Ethics.

In order to work well, it’s important to have a solid and trusting working relationship with everyone I work alongside. This means I work in a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental way. In order for people to feel comfortable working with a counsellor or psychotherapist, I know how important it is to know they will not be judged, reprimanded or discriminated against.

In my over 20 years of working with individuals, couples and families, I have learnt and applied a variety of approaches in my practice because one size does not fit all. These include Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Psychodrama, CBT, Brainspotting and EMDR. Every person who comes to counselling or psychotherapy brings their own unique questions, needs and preferences.  My aim is that our sessions together will suit that uniqueness, so that people can find their own answers to the situations they find themselves in.

I work alongside people as they work through a range of issues and concerns, including:

    • anxiety and depression
    • dealing with change
    • trauma
    • grief and loss
    • coping with illness
    • family issues
    • masculinities
    • relationships
    • sex and sexuality
    • LGBTQIA+ related issues
    • stress
    • career, redundancy and working life
    • decision-making
    • dealing with difficult feelings such as anger or guilt
    • emotional, physical or sexual abuse
    • self-confidence and self-esteem

    Be in touch if you think counselling or psychotherapy are for you.
