About me and my therapy practice

Counselling is an opportunity to talk over any troubling issues in a private and relaxed setting with someone who plays no other role in your life. It allows the counsellor and client to develop a non-judgemental, accepting relationship, where those seeking help feel safe and able to express themselves freely.

As an integrative counsellor, I draw on various therapeutic theories and use them to best suit unique needs of individuals seeking support. I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to its ethical framework. Currently, I work for a charity offering support to young people and adults who are impacted by cancer. I have experience working with issues such as bereavement, loss, depression, anxiety, abuse, spirituality, trauma, childhood issues, relationship problems, work-related issues and many others.

Before training as a counsellor, I worked as a Youth Worker, offering emotional, spiritual and pastoral support both in church and educational settings.

Sessions usually last for 50 minutes and are usually weekly.

What I can help with

Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Cancer, Child related issues, Cultural issues, Depression, Health related issues, Identity issues, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Relationships, Stress, Self esteem, Self-harm, Sex-related issues, Spirituality, Stress, Trauma, Work related issues etc.

Types of therapy
