Hello! I'm a qualified counsellor and trainee psychotherapist in the final year of my training, with six years' experience of working with clients with a wide range of reasons for seeking therapy.  Many of my clients have been with me on medium and long-term contracts.  I enjoy working in depth with people, getting to understand their layers and the relationships that come with that.  I enjoy seeing the quality of organic change generated through this process, enabling shifts in personality that free people from significant past issues and experiences.

I like working collaboratively with my clients, neither directing them nor simply reacting, but bringing my suggestions, experience and theoretical knowledge to bear on what arises.  I prepare for sessions carefully, with a clear intention to help the change process, while being open to it taking a different turn.  I draw on all the resources of my training and expert professional network to enable clients to achieve the change they desire.

I am passionate about the experience of feeling connected and liberated at the same time when I am outside in the natural environment.   I sometimes use outdoor work as part of the therapy process.
