About me

My Background

My training as an holistic practitioner informs my whole-being approach to counselling. I found many people came to me with emotional distress, an understandable response to traumatic relationships and events, and I needed to understand these feelings to be truly alongside them.

I 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.

I have volunteered at Sue Lambert Trust, working with clients who have survived physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse as well as domestic violence and at Mind, supporting clients who have experienced relational trauma, grief, anxiety and depression. 

My Philosophy

As an integrative counsellor I understand that one theory or philosophy can be the answer for everyone, and my training ensures I respond to your individual needs, supporting you to regain the courage and strength to live and feel whole again.

 

I believe 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 together, to discover different, or new ways of approaching relationships and challenges. 

 

I understand healing is enhanced by an 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.
