"THE CURIOUS PARADOX IS THAT WHEN I ACCEPT MYSELF JUST AS I AM, THEN I CAN CHANGE"
CARL ROGERS

Are you going through a crisis, feeling anxious or low ? Or do you feel you are stuck in a pattern of unhelpful behaviours? It can be helpful to explore these difficulties with a trained professional. Friends and family may try to help but you might not feel able to share your concerns with them for fear of not being understood or burdening them. Or it might be that the difficult thoughts you have are just too private to share with them.

Emotional and psychological wounds differ from physical ones: If we break a bone we know that if it is wrapped in plaster and rested after time it will heal. However, with difficult thoughts and feelings this is not the case. We can find ourselves feeling unhappy or anxious sometimes without any obvious ‘reason’ and these worries sometimes hang around when we feel they should be gone.

"THE JOB OF THERAPISTS IS TO HELP PEOPLE ACKNOWLEDGE EXPERIENCE AND BEAR THE REALITY OF LIFE – WITH ALL ITS PLEASURES AND HEARTBREAK"
BESSEL VAN DER KOLK

I have over 15 years experience of offering short and long term counselling. I aim to offer a non - judgemental relationship in a safe setting in which to explore and hopefully grasp more fully the things that are troubling you. Hopefully together we can understand what might help you feel able to live life more ‘authentically’.


After attending a foundation course in Transpersonal counselling at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education I achieved a diploma in Person Centred Counselling from the Metanoia Institute, in 2004. Since then I have built on this with training in, amongst others, CBT and BRIEF therapy and would describe my way of working as Integrative.
