I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). My approach is centred on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and I am experienced in working with individual adults experiencing anxiety connected to emotional difficulties and relationship issues. Working together we will explore whatever is happening for you now. You may wish to talk about issues from your childhood or focus in the here and now. Together we will observe your world with curiosity to work towards what is important for you.
If you are reading this you must have reached a place in your life where you are looking for change in your world. Maybe you are feeling stuck or lost and having a space to talk would make a difference for you to gain a better understanding of your situation. The quality of our relationship is essential for change and I offer a space for you to talk in a non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential environment. You will be able to explore your own unique world safely and at your own pace.
My work aligns with my personal values. I have a mindful approach and observe my life with curiosity and kindness to gain a better understanding of my world. If you would like work towards what is important for you then we can do it together. We will explore your world with curiosity and kindness to help you move towards the fulfilling life you are looking for.
I work as an Integrative Counsellor and my work is centred on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Our focus will be on understanding your world with a commitment towards living a meaningful and fulfilling life. We will explore how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours developed throughout your childhood and adult life impact on everything you do. Using an integrative approach our work will be shaped to meet your unique individual need.
I work with individual adults and offer open-ended or time-limited sessions.
I respect diversity and difference whether it is age, gender, ability, sexuality, religion, ethnicity or culture.
Having worked at a managerial level in various commercial businesses I moved to working within the NHS 9 years ago within a mental health charity. I recognised my working relationships have always been focused on the emotional wellbeing of others so working in the counselling profession was a natural progression for me. I have a personal interest in anxiety issues and childhood attachment and how it shapes the core of who we become and how we live our lives. Developing your awareness will be the core of our work enabling you to work towards living a rich, fulfilling life.
Our first session will be a space to tell me about yourself and what is going on for you at the moment. This session will help us to decide if our working together would be a helpful space to bring about the necessary change you are looking for.
Sessions cost £50.00 for a 50 minute session paid in cash
