I am a qualified, experienced humanistic counsellor and registered member of the BACP and I abide by their code of ethics. I draw on a variety of theoretical perspectives, (including Gestalt, Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis, Attachment Theory). I also use creative explorations and practical tools to help you better understand yourself. I am a BWY qualified yoga teacher and can work with mindfulness and mediation as another form of support to develop.
I have experience of open-ended and time-limited therapy and have worked in both counselling organisations and an NHS setting. I have experience with a wide variety of clients and their issues including relationships, general anxiety, health anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, sadness, low mood, depression, suicidal ideation, loneliness and isolation, anger management, family conflicts, parenting problems, post-natal depression and understanding life transitions.
Prior to working within a counselling context, I also have experience working in large organisations managing teams and services. This has given me experience of the challenges and complexities as we navigate our work environments and relationships.
