I am a British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) accredited counsellor with over twelve years’ experience in the field of mental health and well-being. I work with a diverse range of clients providing counselling and psychotherapy for a variety of issues. I have experience dealing with issues such as anxiety, bereavement and loss, depression, low confidence, divorce, abuse, and gender identity.

Approach to treatment
Overall I take an Integrative approach combining: Person Centred - working in a non-directive, non-judgemental & empathic way with the client. Also Psychodynamic (looking at underlying unconscious motivation), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, how thinking affects our behaviour) & Transpersonal (incorporating the spiritual). I also offer EFT (or tapping).
