Chartered Counselling Psychologist.
I believe that we all experience challenges and difficulties in life. Counselling and psychological therapy can provide an empowering opportunity to manage, process and overcome these difficulties.
I offer high-quality one-to-one psychological therapy with the aim of providing my clients with a confidential, non-judgemental space to discuss their thoughts and feelings. When engaging in evidence-based counselling psychological therapy, the hope is that we can gain clarity about where we are in life and how best to move forward. The aim being to achieve our full potential and gain acceptance of ourselves through self-awareness.
I hold a BSc honours degree in Psychology and a doctorate in Counselling Psychology. I work from a relational stance, placing the therapeutic relationship at the very core of her practice, research and training. I draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches including; Person-Centred counselling, Psychodynamic approaches and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Having worked with adolescents and adults in a variety of settings, both in the public and private sector, I have a breadth of experience. I have worked within the National Health Service in sexual health services, drug and alcohol services and working with those with long term mental health issues. I have also worked within the community based young person's services and women's services. I have a specialist interest in difference, diversity and identity.
I am currently managing and implementing a counselling service within a secondary school.
