My integrative approach means I am informed by a number of theories that I bring to our collaborative relationship. My practice is relational and I will actively engage with you and be curious to how our relating informs our work together. Feeling overwhelmed, lost, isolated and distressed? I aim to provide a safe, calm, confidential space to explore what is going on for you and together find a way to make sense of it all, to see the way through the difficulties.
As a qualified Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I volunteer at Mind and The One To One Project. I have a background in education - specialising in social, emotional and behavioural difficulties - and with a twelve step programme working with family survivors of alcoholics; both of which have led to a passion for human relational interactions. I accessed training at Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy to develop my skills and integrate my extensive twelve step programme knowledge.
Amongst other things, I support adults with anxiety, grief, lack of self confidence, loss, meaning in life and suicidal risk in a world that can be scary and challenging. I also work with survivors of relational, developmental and environmental trauma, exploring how these experiences are informing life today.
I am committed to my own personal and professional development; keeping informed of current research and undertaking clinical supervision of my work.
