Philosophy and style of working:
As an integrative counsellor, I use theories from different modalities, adjusting the work to suit each client. This comes from a belief that every person I meet is an individual and one size does not fit all. I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts and feelings, helping you to frame your thoughts differently, changing your perspective and allowing you to grow. From the nurturing relationship we will develop, you will use this template for your future relationships in your personal and professional life.
I have worked with a wide range of psychological issues including anxiety, depression, neurodiversity, addiction, relationship problems, bereavement, illness and work related issues.
I would hope that anyone I meet feels listened to.

Training and Experience:
While completing my training, I worked for an affordable counselling charity in the local community as well as working in a primary school. More recently, I have helped to run a group supporting young mothers with post-natal depression and have completed a placement in a secondary school. Alongside my charity counselling work, I have set up my own private practice working with adults.
I am committed to continued professional development and am a member of the BACP, whose code of ethical practice I adhere to in my work. I also attend regular supervision sessions.
