About Me

“I believe that our mental health is of paramount importance. If we are emotionally or psychologically distressed it has a negative impact on our well-being in a variety of ways. If we are physically unwell we seek help from professionals so be kind to yourself and seek professional help for your mental health and well-being.”

I hold an Honours Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy, a Diploma in Relationship Counselling, a Certificate in Online Counselling and a Professional Diploma in Clinical Supervision. I am accredited with both IAHIP and IACP and I am registered with ICP.

About The Process

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
(Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person)

Humanistic and integrative psychotherapy is not only about adopting various therapeutic approaches, it is about integrating the wholeness of being human.

What to Expect

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.”
(Einstein, Ideas and Opinions)

At first you may feel a bit anxious about counselling and this is a natural response to the unknown. However, this feeling should lesson as you build a relationship with your therapist and you begin to talk about your difficulties. Therefore most psychotherapists will suggest 6 sessions to allow time for a therapeutic relationship to develop between you. The more you experience a sense of respect, trust and safety; the more you may feel you can talk about your life experiences. The decision to come for counselling is not always easy but it can provide the potential for change leading to a more fulfilling, resourceful and contented life.
