Integrative counselling

Hello and welcome

Counselling for individuals and couples - online, or in person.

UK and worldwide.

At times life can be filled with challenges, disappointments and sadness. Events or experiences may happen in our daily lives that are unexpected or we find very painful and difficult to recover from. Perhaps you are grieving, or suffering as a result of a trauma in your life and realise you aren’t coping. Or you might feel stuck in a relationship, struggling with feelings such as anxiety, distress and hopelessness and it can seem too much to deal with alone.  Maybe life looks fine on the surface, but you feel you've lost your sense of enthusiasm, joy and pleasure in life. You may keep going, but know things are getting worse and find yourself at a place where you wonder if there is a way forward. ​

Everyone comes to counselling for his or her own reasons: we all have our own story and our own unique life experiences. I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space to support you when life is at its most difficult and to help you achieve lasting, positive change in your life. In my experience, change really is possible.

About me

I am an Integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor and accredited with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and registered with BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

My practice is located in Spalding, Lincolnshire and I work in-person, or online by video call.

I provide a safe space to help you to explore your thoughts and feelings, make sense of your experience, and develop a deeper understanding of yourself. I draw on a wide range of modalities in order to create the right therapeutic approach for each individual. Together, we will explore your present concerns with sensitivity and curiosity, seeking to understand, accept and respect your past influences, where you are now and your hopes for the future. Beginning counselling means different things to different people, but it is often an action of courage, hope and determination. 

I offer sessions in-person (depending upon government guidelines) or online by video call. I understand the demands we currently face and the stresses it places on all of us. For this reason, I use technology as a solution to make it easier for you to fit counselling into your life. I encourage you to browse this site and read more about me and how I work. Its really important to find the right therapist for you to work with, who you feel comfortable with and can help you to achieve change.
