Who am I?
I am a counsellor working with adults on a one-to-one basis in East Anglia. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I abide by their professional code of ethics. Over the years I have achieved a great deal of experience while working successfully with a mix of clientele presenting many different issues including anxiety; depression; bereavement and loss; issues relating to sex and shame; psychological, physical and emotional abuse; and more.
I have supported many clients through huge life changes.
How did I get here?
My interest in psychology and philosophy began when I was quite young. I wanted to understand myself and my life as much as possible. There were episodes of emotional turmoil and mental health issues in my family, and these experiences drove me to further my understandings of ” the human condition”.
I studied psychology at the Open University and wondered how I could use my knowledge and experience to support people who wanted to improve their mental and emotional wellbeing. To that end I chose to train as an integrative counsellor; that being a counsellor who seeks to integrate many theories of the human mind, brain and being into a single theory (a theory of theories) concerning the reasons behind emotional and psychological distress and the possibilities and methods for easing that distress.
