I provide counselling for adults and older adults.
I work with openness and warmth, believing that emotional wounds and outdated patterns of behaviour can heal and change given the right opportunity. I offer you an experience of being truly listened to, valued and accepted.
I can help in a number of areas including: anxiety, anger, bereavement, depression, relationship difficulties, stress, disability, identity, personal development and making sense of past experiences and major life events. By drawing on a range of theories and techniques, I seek to use what best meets your needs at any given time. Our work together will be collaborative and always at your pace.
I have a Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (BACP-accredited course, The Mary Ward Centre: CPCAB). I am a Register Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
As well as my own private practice, I work as a volunteer counsellor in a mental health charity. Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked as a solicitor in the field of family law. I have an interest in the contribution of neuroscience to psychology and in our understanding of the brain’s ability to change by making new connections and pathways.
Therapy: Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic, Relational, Transpersonal. I offer short (typically 6-12 sessions) or longer-term therapy, held either in-person or by Zoom.
If you’d like to explore having counselling with me, I offer an initial free 20 minute phone or Zoom consultation whereyou can tell me a little about yourself and what you would like counselling to help with and discuss the next steps.
