About this Service

Hello and welcome to my page.

Finding a therapist can be really daunting and it may seem like you’re negotiating a minefield! Knowing more about a therapist can help you decide what feels like the best fit for you. I am passionate about providing support that is both holistic and person centred. As an integrative counsellor, my approach is tailored to each person I work with. Getting to know you, we can develop a shared understanding of your own, unique needs and I will try to help you make sense of what you feel the way you do. We can then work towards ensuring you have the tools to help you move on with your life both emotionally and practically.

I work in an integrative way that is free flowing. This means that I will encourage you to explore and make sense of your own ongoing life experiences. I will always support you to connect with your own inner wisdom and resources as I believe we all have the innate potential to heal ourselves. I offer a personalised, holistic approach comprising counselling, EFT ( Emotional Freedom Technique), somatic work, mindfulness and Havening techniques in order to help you reclaim your own power and to feel empowered and ‘enough’ in your own life.

I do have a special interest in helping those who have experienced trauma of any kind to explore, heal and move forwards from their pasts towards a future that feels nurturing and wonderful.

My early years had many trials and tribulations, as many do, and like those who have experienced childhood trauma, I have been guided by my own need to heal. It was in my forties, because of a series of external events, including the death of several family members, that I was able to kickstart my own healing journey and become the person I am today.

I have over 30 years experience of working with adults and children who have struggled with their wellbeing. I truly love what I do and I hold a space for my clients with heart centred kindness, compassion, empathy and non- judgement. I will always be honest and not say what I think you want to hear. I will ensure you feel safe too.

I have experienced the transformative impacts of counselling, Reiki, EFT and TRE ( Trauma and Tension Release Exercises) for myself and in my fifties, I have continued to train as rigorously as I can, so I feel able to give others the kind of relief, joy and opportunities that I have experienced in my own healing journey to date.

It’s my privilege to work alongside you to discover the approach and pace that feels perfect for you at this moment in your life. I look forward to hearing from you.
