I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist who works in a gentle, collaborative way, providing a safe space where you can be heard, understood, respected and supported to explore any difficult feelings and to make any changes you may wish in order to enhance your life and relationships with others.
I believe in a holistic approach to health, understanding that mind and body are closely linked and have an interest in the way nutrition, self-care and environment all impact on mental health.
Choosing a counsellor for the first time can seem a daunting experience and I believe finding the right therapist who works in a way that suits you is key to a successful outcome, therefore I am happy to offer an initial complimentary session where we can meet to discuss your needs, with no obligation.
In addition to my Person Centered approach my training in Transactional Analysis offers a particular framework for looking at past experiences and how they may be impacting on the present, helping us to understand thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Then, through bringing this into awareness, providing the opportunity for change.
I am used to working with both short term and long term clients using a range of techniques tailored to the client’s particular need
I have wide ranging experience within both the voluntary and private sector, with charitable organisations, private practise and the NHS. I am a qualified, experienced bereavement counsellor. My current work within the NHS Perinatal Mental Health Service has given me extensive knowledge and experience of working with women with issues around fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, post natal depression and birth trauma.
