About me and how I work

I believe that we are all individuals, shaped by our unique life experiences, with our own pain and struggles.  I provide a safe and confidential space to listen without judgement, to help you process whatever is going on for you in that moment, and to be alongside you in it.  Through empathy and compassion I can model what I believe to be essential for healing: self-compassion.

I am a Humanistc and Integrative Counsellor.  What does this mean?  The therapeutic relationship is often cited as the most important contributor to positive change.  This relational approach is at the core of how I work, whilst also drawing from a variety of therapeutic theories as we try to find the source of difficult feelings and to make sense of your experience.

Building upon my own personal experience, I am particularly interested in working with clients who are, or who care for people who are neurodivergent or have disabilities.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical framework.
