Counselling is a unique process for everyone. Life can be challenging at times, provoking anxiety or low mood and perhaps insecurities that usually feel under control.
I am an integrative counsellor which means I have learnt about more than one theory, I offer the freedom to be who you are today, in the present moment of counselling. Feeling comfortable with me as your counsellor is most important and this allows the building of a trusting relationship. Research demonstrates that this is one of the most significant factors for success in counselling.
My work with children and young people is creative, offering a safe space and time for them to express their feelings and difficulties. From my own experience of parenting I am very aware that some children and young people need distance from their family to process difficulties. Awareness that children and young people need help earlier, in a way that works is now well documented.
I offer a professional service. I hold Professional Indemnity Insurance and am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and National Counselling Society and subscribe to their codes of ethics and practice. I am also fully enhanced DBS checked.
