About Me

I am a person-centred counsellor offering support to those who are facing issues causing them distress and discomfort. In our sessions I will be able to offer you a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment where I will aim to empower you to overcome these issues so that they no longer have the impact on you that they once did. I have previously worked within schools, alongside charities, and in private practice to develop a range of skills and experience to allow me to help you in the best way possible. I am a keen artist and frequently like to use this in my sessions. Whilst I wouldn’t classify this as Art therapy, I do use it to strengthen our relationship and understand what you may be going through. I also use other creative means, such as using sandbox video games (Minecraft) and work a lot in metaphor (such creating a film or story) to help you deal with their issues in a safe way.

I can help you with

Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Trauma, Relationship Issues, Eating Disorders, Stress, Self-Esteem, Bereavement, Suicidal Idealisation
