Special interest areas

I am particularly drawn to working with issues related to clients' sense of self -worth and self-esteem. I see counselling as a potentially transformative journey that can alter and positively shape the ways we see and experience ourselves and in addition relate to others.. I particularly enjoy working with young adults aged 18- 30. In fact, in addition to counselling university students online, I also work as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor to students in Higher Education both online and face-to-face..

Personal Statement

I welcome a diversity of clients and am keen to honour the individuality of each one. I am eager to support clients in such a way that they can achieve relief from emotional distress, further their well-being, realise their potential, and bring meaning to their lives. I provide a warm, supportive, accepting, and empathetic space. I work integratively drawing on psychodynamic and humanistic models. I am particularly drawn to working with issues related to relationships, family and self-worth.
