I am a BACP registered integrative counsellor. My approach is flexible, and I use a variety of therapeutic techniques to suit individual needs. I work towards creating a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients as I believe this is at the heart of the healing process. I have experience working in both an agency and school setting and I work with adults and children.
Accessing counselling can be a hard decision, but sometimes we find ourselves in difficult situations, struggling to cope or experiencing painful emotions. During these times we can look for a safe, confidential and calm place to discuss our feelings and this is when counselling may help. I provide a warm, non-judgemental and supportive space to help you to explore, identify and reflect on your feelings and issues which I believe can encourage positive change.
I work with children of all ages and use creative materials including sand and art. Some children find it difficult or confusing to talk so I often work using ‘toys’ and ‘metaphor’ which can help them to relax and better express themselves.
