Coming from a professional background I decided to retrain as a counsellor in 2013 after going through my own process of personal growth and change. I have been working as an Integrative Counsellor in an agency setting since May 2017 and decided to set up in private practice in 2019. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Counselling accredited by the National Counselling Society and I work in accordance with the NCS Code of Ethics. The agency I work with is an organisational member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and we work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.
I have worked alongside children, young people and adults to overcome personal difficulties associated with a range of issues including anxiety, grief/bereavement, depression, trauma, work stress, caring, relationship difficulties and break ups, domestic violence and abuse.
As an Integrative Counsellor my approach is Humanistic in style and shares a variety of aspects from some specific modalities of counselling including Person-Centered, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Solution Focussed Brief Therapy.
The key to the work that I do is that it is absolutely led by your needs as the client and held in a therapeutic space supported by my offering of empathy, respect, acceptance and honesty. My intention is to be by your side, without judgement, as you journey through your process. You can learn more about my services and the costs here.
