Welcome to my profile. I hope it provides you with a clear outline of the counselling and psychotherapy service I offer.
I am an accredited integrative therapist and supervisor with 16 years of experience in private practice and bereavement counselling.
'Integrative' means I draw on psychodynamic, humanistic, and attachment-informed approaches. This means I work with the impact of experiences in childhood and adolescence, but also pay close attention to current relationships and the here-and-now experience in the therapy room.
In addition to private practice, I worked for the NHS as a manager of a staff counselling service, providing therapy for staff experiencing work-related stress, anxiety, and other common mental health issues such as depression, life events, loss and bereavement.
As a therapist I provide individual and group therapy to clients with a wide range of depression and anxiety disorders. I also provide therapy support to couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship.
I started my career working as a Residential Social Worker, providing care for adults with additional needs.
Having a passion for helping people and facing my own challenges led me to a career in counselling and psychotherapy. All of us at some point in our lives will experience emotional or psychological issues, it is part of being human.
Therapy can provide a supportive relationship, helping you to gain a sense of clarity and build a greater sense of trust and confidence in yourself.
My desire is that through our work together you will gain insights into your issues and enable you to move forward in your life.
