About me

I work using a humanistic approach to counselling. My main therapeutic approach is Transactional Analysis (TA). TA is a humanistic therapy and a form of social psychology that focusses on relationships, communication and healing. 

I work with people (adults and young people, 16 years plus) looking for support with all kinds of challenges. I offer a safe, empathic and confidential space to talk, to deal with difficulties, change behaviours and allow you to understand yourself and your worries better. My style is professional, empathic, pro-active and supportive. Everyone is unique and my aim is to work with your style and what you're comfortable with. 

I have been working in the helping profession since 2011, specialising in working with people who have experienced trauma and wider mental health difficulties.
