I'm a Graduate Integrative Counsellor, with past experience in mental health, general practice and domestic abuse settings. I have also been a Mentor for young care leavers. I can offer brief, short-term and open-ended counselling.
I have a National Open College Network Counselling Skills Certificate, (2010) and a BA (Hons) Counselling Studies Degree, (2013). I'm an Accredited Registrant member of The National Counselling Society, which is on The Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register.
I have specialized in anxiety, depression and domestic violence, alongside maintaining a general practice.
Many problems respond well to talking therapies. The following list includes some of the issues I've recently worked with, where clients have reported seeing positive change: anxiety, grief, adoption, emotional abuse, depression, low self-esteem, identity, rape, midlife crisis, relationships, abortion, trauma, domestic abuse and sexual abuse.
I currently work face to face with individual adults and also offer telephone and Online Counselling via Zoom, during the COVID-19 crisis.
My training included a range of approaches including: Humanistic, CBT, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, TA and Person centred. This means that I can tailor my way of working around whatever you need to bring. If you feel that a collaborative and understanding therapeutic relationship could benefit you, then please get in touch for a no obligation Initial Consultation. We can discuss your situation, expectations and any aims and goals you may have.
