Trained in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling & Psychotherapy; I am able to draw on several psychotherapeutic and counselling approaches in order to best suit you. As a counsellor who experiences clients as unique and individual; I don't believe in a one size fits all approach, so we will work together to find a way of working that feels right for you.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society. Both membership bodies have a code of ethics which I adhere to. As a counselling professional; the welfare of my client is central to my work and I commit to avoid all manner of harm.
I hold enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service checks (DBS) which permits me to work with Children, Young People & Adults.
