I am a qualified integrative, Person-Centred Psychotherapist and Experiential Counsellor (Dip. Counselling). I am a registered member of the British Association Of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and am DBS certified to work with children and young people.
I am a warm, caring, empathic and experienced counsellor who believes in empowering the individual to find their own way to develop skills to cope with whatever they are going through.
What is spoken about depends on the individual, understanding that it can be difficult to talk about personal and sensitive issues. I am trained to listen without judging, and to provide you with a safe place to explore and process your own thoughts and feelings in your own time.
Children and Young People
I am enthusiastic about the promotion of the mental health awareness of children and young people. As an Integrative Counsellor I employ different methods appropriate to individual need, including creative play, art, crafts and mindfulness, in order to create a safe and welcoming space for the child or young person to talk, explore and express what is concerning them in their own unique way. I work with children from 5yrs-18yrs old.
Sometimes we are unable to clearly identify why we feel the way we do, which may lead to feeling vulnerable, anxious and depressed. These situations expose when we feel we have lost our way in life. I can offer you my time, empathy and respect to help you to explore your way of thinking in order to find a way forward.
