About me

I'm a compassionate, caring Accredited Member of the BACP that strives to 'meet' you in your world. I work to help you untangle your difficulties so that they become more manageable. I can then help you to acquire new perspectives &/or new skills to help you overcome the issues that you face.

I attempt to work in a straight forward manner, keeping mumbo jumbo to a minimum and I can work in a variety of ways to suit your situation. In the sessions, there is no magic, no hocus pocus. I strive to really listen to your story and to understand your position. I listen for patterns in your story and if appropriate offer you an alternative perspective that might enable you to gain a new understanding of your story ... or yourself ... or both. I am particularly interested in your relationships ... to yourself, to those who have helped to shape your personality, those around you, the wider world and our counselling relationship as we work together.

I'm a Relational Integrative Counsellor which means that I blend theory and techniques from the major schools (Humanistic, Psychodynamic & CBT) of psychotherapy. My integrative approach looks to utilise creative techniques which can help to reveal aspects of your story that is hidden in your subconscious. Additionally meditative techniques can be useful to combat the symptoms of a wide range of issues.

That said, these are your sessions and your journey, so you are always in control of the direction we take and the vehicle we use to get there.
