Humanistic Integrative Counselling

An approach to counselling that enables me to draw upon a range of therapeutic techniques in order to tailor my approach to meet your individual needs


Having received counselling as an adult and also having worked with adults in my role as their counsellor, I have experienced the capacity which counselling has to facilitate positive change in our lives at any point.


Unfortunately I do not currently have any vacancies to offer couples counselling at this time. This page will be updated as soon as vacancies become available.

Young People

I feel strongly that the problems we encounter early on in life, if unaddressed, can impact greatly upon us throughout our lives.
