About me

I have been practising as a Counsellor for 16 years and became accredited by the BACP in 2007. Since qualifying, I have continued to work in the NHS, providing specialist counselling support individuals and couples within the Department of Reproductive Medicine, as well as more generalised counselling support to staff members.

I have 12 years practice experience as a school counsellor supporting children and young adults aged 7-18 years. I am also a registered social worker with 9 years experience supporting adults experiencing mental health difficulties.

Alongside working in the NHS and schools, I have experience of providing employment assistance counselling support in local authority and commercial organisations. I have tutored on counselling issues and counselling skills courses and have enjoyed gathering a wide range of experience through many years of practice in different settings.

I have an Advanced Diploma in counselling from Manchester University and qualified as an integrative counsellor in 2001. Since then I have continued to develop my practice and skills base and have completed a wide range of additional training.

I am a qualified counselling supervisor providing supervision to counsellors working in a school and Women's Centre setting.

I am able to offer a confidential and flexible counselling service in a warm, safe and friendly environment.

I have a person centered philosophy and through my training as an integrative counsellor, I am able to apply different counselling approaches to try to help individuals, couples, adults, children and young people overcome problems and hopefully find themselves in a preferred place.

In terms of the service that I offer, I aim to be as flexible as possible and am happy to negotiate times and frequency of contact to meet the needs of the individual.
