About me

My Background

My training as an holistic practitioner has informed my caring and whole-being approach to counselling. I found that many clients came to me experiencing emotional distress caused by both past and present experiences and relationships, and I needed to understand where these feelings originated to be truly alongside them.

I have volunteered at Mind, supporting clients with, relational trauma, grief, anxiety and depression.  I have worked in trauma services with clients who have survived physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse as well as domestic violence.  I also volunteer at the Sue Lambert Trust in Norwich.

I have trained in the three main counselling approaches: psychodynamic, behavioural, and humanistic, and I draw from these theories in a relational way, allowing us to explore collaboratively the here and now as well as how the past may be affecting you.

My Philosophy

As an integrative counsellor I believe that no one theory or philosophy will be the answer for everyone, and through my training I can respond to your individual needs, supporting you to regain the courage and strength to live and feel whole again.

 

I understand counselling to be a holistic process, integrating all aspects or parts of self: mind, body, social and spiritual. I will work collaboratively with you to integrate each element into a coherent whole, exploring patterns of behaviour and thinking, to discover different, or new ways of approaching relationships and challenges. 

 

I believe healing to be enhanced by empathic, relational approach to whatever is causing you stress and anxiety.  Counselling is helpful at every stage of life, a supportive space of acceptance to promote and improve mental health.
