I am an integrative counsellor - everyone is an individual and my role is to help people find their own answers - matching therapy to individual need and communication style. I am trained in person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), integrative and mindfulness approaches. Social, health and life circumstances are also important to consider. I am experienced in working with the full range of common mental health issues: anxiety, depression, relationship problems and life changes and specialise in helping people whose physical health problems are impacting their mental health; those who were abused in childhood; stress and grief.

I have 19 years’ experience counselling in higher education, the voluntary sector, for EAP’s and 11 years in primary care mental health in the NHS. I work in a time limited or open ended way according to individual need.
