I am a fully qualified Person Centred therapist offering counselling and psychotherapy to adults (over 18). I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, depression, low self-worth, sexuality and gender issues, relationship issues, grief, work-related stress, abuse and other life-changing events.
I am also an experienced Life Coach, which means I can help you to achieve your goals, be more successful and make positive changes in a structured, dynamic and practical way. As I’m trained in both counselling and coaching, you can opt for either therapy or we can use elements of both approaches. We will discuss this together as appropriate.
Although, I mainly work in a person-centred way, I use whatever counselling and coaching styles will be most helpful to you. Working together, I aim to help you to understand yourself better, to find your own solutions and coping strategies, and to achieve your aspirations and a better quality of life. We will work at your pace, and be guided by what you choose to talk about.
I have worked in an NHS setting and currently offer counselling / coaching part time at a local university. These experiences have enabled me to work with people from a wide range of ages, backgrounds, cultures and circumstances.
I also offer Reiki (energetic healing). Please ask me for more information.
