I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor with experience of working with adults, young people and children, with a wide range of problems and concerns.
The approach I use is called humanistic, which means that I start from the belief that each of us has the ability to self-heal. The therapist or counsellor is there to help by offering support when difficult emotions, painful feelings or unhelpful ways of behaving make life hard. I am also experienced in working with the creative arts, which can be used in therapy alongside talking.
I work in education, in private practice and with children in foster care. Previously I have worked within the NHS, Mental Health services and in the workplace and the community. I am familiar with the unique challenges these environments can present. I also keep up to date with the latest developments in therapy and counselling by continued training, research and reading.
My way of working is always to focus on the client and their concerns.
