I am an experienced integrative counsellor, my aim is to meet people where they are at and provide a space for change, growth and healing to take place.  I have a back ground in teaching and the creative arts and have an understanding of the pressures that come with balancing a job, family and identity.  My counselling is based in integrative practice which means I have a toolbox of responses and interventions which I may use in order to help my client.  Some of this involves using art and creative tools; however I am led by the clients way of working and aim to enable and facilitate a safe space where they feel free to talk and share in their own way.   As well as a background in teaching I have worked in settings with adults struggling with complex mental health issues and have experience in bereavement and trauma counselling.   Much of my work centres around becoming and being a parent; the ups and downs of discovering what that means in the context of your everyday life, relationships, work and family.  My areas of practice cover:

  • preparation for birth

  • ante-natal mental health

  • post-natal mental health (depression, anxiety and birth trauma)

  • early attachment and parenting

  • loss and bereavement

  • fertility
