I am a warm, compassionate person who offers a confidential, safe space for clients to express themselves and explore areas of their lives which they find challenging. I aim to build a trusting, collaborative relationship with my clients which is fundamental to a positive and successful counselling process in which healing and change can happen.
I practise relationship integrative psychotherapy which recognises that the relationship between the counsellor and the client is integral to the healing/change process. I take a Person Centred approach which is non-directive and empathic. Being an integrative therapist means that I draw on different psychological models, such as Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to best serve my client's needs. I have a special interest in using a neuroscience-informed approach to help people understand their difficult emotions and reactions to life in order to heal and, ultimately, come to a place of self-acceptance and peace. As every client is individual, therapy is tailored to each client's unique needs.
I am able to offer both face-to-face counselling or online counselling, depending on need.
We don't have to do it all alone. We were never meant to.
I am married to a Guernseyman and have lived in Guernsey for over 30 years. I feel fortunate to be able to call Guernsey home and to have raised our family here. In my free time I like nothing better than to explore all that the island has to offer, whether on foot, by bicycle, by paddleboard or by finding the best bit of sea to swim in!
I offer counselling for a range of issues ....
... including anxiety, depression, low self esteem, stress, bereavement, life transitions, trauma, addictions, historic childhood neglect/abuse, eating disorders, anger management, relationship issues, etc.
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.
