About Me

Why Counselling with me?

I practice according to the ethics and guidelines of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, which ensures you will be counselled in an environment that is safe, professional, confidential, non-judgmental and supportive.

As an Integrative Counsellor, I am trained to work in a variety of therapies according to your preferences and needs, including person-centred and psychodynamic counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, family therapy, couples counselling, group work as well as solution focused therapy and mindfulness.
