I am an integrative counsellor and with supportive, non judgemental counselling I can help you find the underlying source that is causing distress, depression, persistent anxiety, negative patterns / coping strategies, empowering you to make changes with positive choices & improve mental health.

I chose to change my career to train as a counsellor after my personal counselling journey, which brought about the most significant and positive change for me, the increased self-awareness, and in particular Inner child work towards the end of training, which liberated me from my limiting and negative, introjected, and maladapted beliefs I had stored through earlier years and were holding me back. I finally began to have compassion for myself, to re-evaluate and start to have an internal valuing system rather than giving that power to others. Working with acknowledgment, validation and processing of all the supressed emotions sitting deep in my subconscious I was alleviating the psychological turmoil deep within, therefore able to live life more authentically.
I have a special interest in working with ADHD/ADD clients to help them understand who they are, that with the right support and understanding, they can reach their true potential, move forward and lead fulfilling lives. I also promote education around ADHD/ADD, with so much misunderstanding of this, and in particular ADD (where hyperactivity is not as prominent).
I also specialise using 'Inner-Child' therapy to meet the needs that were not met as a child, allowing exploration of implicit beliefs and coping strategies that are unhelpful as an adult, holding back growth and unprocessed emotions causing inner turmoil.

Experienced with childhood abuse, domestic abuse, complicated bereavement and loss, self-harm. Understanding dealing with loved ones who are suffering with mental health issues.
