I am an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I work with individuals, couples and groups. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by its ethical framework for good practice. I am also recognised by AXA PPP, Aviva and Vitality Health Insurance Providers.
My practice is based on humanistic principles, which means that our work will focus on you – your thoughts, your feelings, your behaviours and how you experience the world.
My approach is empathic, non-judgemental and my non-directive style allows us to explore whatever feels important to you, at a pace that feels right for you. This has proven to help clients to develop a sense of safety as well heightened self-awareness, which is a catalyst for change and personal growth to occur. I have a naturally warm presence which enables me to offer you a comfortable space where we can develop a secure and confidential relationship in which you can feel heard, understood and accepted as you are.
My experience includes working with anxiety, depression and their various manifestations, sexual abuse, sexual assault, relationship issues, sexuality, domestic abuse, infant death, trauma, bereavement and suicide ideation. I also currently work with medical students in higher education which comprises diversity and a wide range of individual experiences.
I have personal experience of working with autism and I have experienced the transformational impact that counselling can have when faced with difficult, traumatic and life changing experiences.
My supervision is primarily based on person centred principles, focusing on the therapeutic conditions and the client/therapist relationship.
I aim to help you develop presence in your relationships with clients, openness to your own experiencing in response to client material, and your confidence and capacity to work with clients at depth.
