I am a supportive and empathetic therapist, who provides a safe , non judgmental and confidential environment for clients to explore their difficulties. I believe that the experience of sharing difficult feelings; of being ‘heard’ and not judged can be liberating and empowering. I work with individuals and couples. When appropriate we can include techniques from mindfulness and meditation in the therapy sessions.
I have 18 years experience teaching English and maths to second language speakers, many of whom are refugees/asylum seekers. These adults/teenagers have often experienced trauma, anxiety, bereavement and depression among others. I hold an up to date CRB check.
I am a student member of the Institute of Transactional Analysis and abide by their code of ethics/conduct. I am also a member of the BACP. I receive regular supervision.
