I am a qualified and registered psychotherapist and counsellor, with an MSc in Person-centred Psychotherapy. I have worked with individuals across varied settings, including non-profit counselling organisations and University Counselling Services and provided counselling contracts for The Family Intervention Project, Women’s Aid and NHS Employee Assistance Programs. I have also worked with anxiety management groups at Mind.
My clinical experience has allowed me to support people with a wide range of difficulties including: depression, anxiety, responses to trauma, domestic violence, sexual abuse and assault, self-harming, anger, loss and bereavement, relationship issues, disordered eating and low self-esteem. I am able to offer both short term sessions and open-ended work, for those that wish to explore issues in more depth.
I provide an empathic, non-judgmental place in which the client can explore their thoughts and feelings and gain increased clarity and understanding of their difficulties. Working collaboratively with each person, finding the solutions and choices which are right for them, is integral to my approach. I believe counselling can help further develop inner resources, allowing the individual to live life more fully, which can be of value far beyond the counselling experience.
