“It is my goal to create a comfortable, safe environment where we’ll work together to achieve your goals.”

I am an Integrative counsellor. This means that I believe the relationship between counsellor and client is key to allowing change to occur for my clients. We would initially look at the goals you wish to meet through your therapy but we would work in a non-directive way, that is our time together is your time and each session is yours to bring whatever material you wish on that day.

Working integratively means that I am trained in the work of many theorists and can tailor our approach to best suit the needs of you as the client. I see therapy as a journey we embark upon together, as with any journey it may not always seem easy and there may be challenges along the way that together we can explore and overcome.

I believe that continuous learning is essential. Emotional issues and mental health are very much more openly spoken about in today’s world and it is an evolutionary science. For this reason I continue to expand on my own knowledge and training as I feel this gives more depth to my offering to my clients.

Consultations take place in a private room adjacent to my home. It is on the ground floor offering separate easy access in a quiet country environment offering peace and tranquillity. Ample convenient parking immediately outside.

I am a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)

I have an enhanced DBS certificate.
