I work with young people and adults in my private practice. I offer a confidential non-judgemental safe and comfortable environment, which will make it easier for you to express and explore yourself, feelings, thoughts and concerns.
I have trained as an integrative counsellor which means I use different theoretical models. I use different approaches to tailor what you need. The approaches I use are Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic.
