I am an Integrative Therapist who uses the best approaches to suit the issues that clients may bring into the therapy room. I provide a non-judgmental, empathetic, supportive space where clients can open up and feel safe and be heard. Whilst counselling can help clients to process deep, difficult or painful thoughts and feelings, I believe that therapy can also focus on the potential of my clients. I work in an integrative way with them to identify and draw on their inner resources to live a fuller, more satisfying life.
My experience includes working within addiction and substance misuse which means I have worked with a vast client group as well as working in education within emotional and behavioural settings. I understand the pressures people impose upon themselves which can lead to unhelpful or damaging coping strategies. I work to identify healthier ways of managing and have experience in a wide range of issues including conflict resolution.
I understand the internal and external pressures behind managing emotions and stress and I specialise in anxiety, anger, depression, and have a special interest in behavioural therapy.
