I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and BACP Registered Independent Counsellor, experienced in working with all the main causes of emotional distress, including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, work related issues, anger, addiction.
I work with adults, couples and young people and also supervise other counsellors. I use a client-centred approach, adapting my way of working to suit the individual client.
I believe that personal development and self-awareness are the most important qualities the therapist brings to the therapeutic relationship with each client and have undergone many years of intensive personal development myself.
I trained as a counsellor after careers in media and government and having a family. I bring a wealth of practical life experience to bear as well as academic qualifications relevant to this field.
