I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor who can help you to explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours in a safe and professional environment in a way that you feel comfortable with. I draw on a broad range of approaches in order to enable you to reflect and gain insight into the problems you are experiencing, based on your needs as a client. I believe that you have the ability to make positive changes in your life, and that you can develop a clearer understanding of your difficulties and how to overcome them if you are shown empathy, compassion and a non-judgmental approach. This is the foundation of my approach as a counsellor. I have experience of counselling clients across a varied range of issues. I have particular experience in counselling clients who have varying physical problems including speech and communication difficulties, with carers of people who are disabled and with clients who have a range of mental health difficulties including depression and anxiety.
