A few words about myself

There are occasions for all of us when challenging situations, psychological or relational problems can impair daily life or erode our happiness. At such times it can be immensely helpful to talk to someone professional and impartial, to help you work out how to deal with negative thoughts and feelings and make positive changes.

I recognize the primary importance of the relationship between client and counsellor and endeavour to create a warm, safe and supportive environment.  In sessions you are encouraged to talk through your concerns.  Through listening, understanding, gently questioning and challenging at times, I facilitate a deepening of your own insights, by working through your primary concerns and expanding your potential options.

My training focused on integrative relational counselling, which means that I draw on a range of theories to support our work together and find the ones that seem to work best for you.  I have experience in working with adults of all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations.

I normally wish to see you for a 50 minute session once a week.  This can be either short term such as a 12-session contract or can be open-ended depending upon your needs.

In addition to my private practice I work as a volunteer counsellor within the NHS.

I am a member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.
