About Me

Experience

I’m a person-centred therapist with a masters degree in clinical counselling.  Since qualifying, I’ve had the privilege of working with clients from many backgrounds to give them the conditions to overcome distress and anxiety, in the many ways they affect our lives and relationships.

The person-centred approach is a growth model: it sees our pain as the product of our experiences and our ideas of who we are, and it sees therapy as a chance to transform ourselves in the presence of another’s understanding and acceptance.  Research shows that therapy as a healing relationship, and the person-centred approach in particular, works.

I'm an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  My accreditation means I'm recognised as providing clients a "higher standard as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner" by my professional body.  The BACP provides guidelines and standards for its members and it acts on complaints to provide the public with security and assurance.

My professional experience includes working with:

Anxiety

Anger

Bereavement and grief

Childhood abuse and neglect

Depression

Low self-esteem

Relationship difficulties

Shame and guilt

Self-harm

Substance use and dependency

Suicidal thoughts

I've worked with many LGBTQ+ clients.

Approach to Psychotherapy and Counselling

Person-Centred Therapy is an evidence-based approach that is client led, relational, and exploratory.  Its basis is a relationship that is respectful, authentic, and empathic, the conditions revealed by research as promoting therapeutic growth. 

Attachment science has reinforced these findings and shown that, just as we are formed by our first relationships, later relationships can change our limiting assumptions about ourselves and the world.
