I understand that looking for a counsellor can be a daunting process. I want to start by assuring you that whatever is causing you distress at the moment is something you can overcome. Sometimes talking through your concerns and being listened to can allow you to see things from a different perspective. It is often hard to do this on your own and counselling can help start this process of developing insight and self-awareness about your situation.
I am a Person-centred Counsellor, I focus on the here and now and what is holding us back from reaching our full potential. During counselling we would focus on you as a whole, and also look at the factors that may influence your decisions and explore what these mean in your life.
Am I The Right Counsellor For You
I work with a wide range of clients experiencing depression and anxiety, but also people who have experienced abuse trauma and violence in their lives. I also work with issues including Life Crisis’ or Life Blocks, Creative Blocks, Bereavement and Loss, identity and relationship issues, LGBTQ+ Counselling.
I offer Skype or FaceTime and telephone counselling too.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Higher Professional Diploma in person-centred counselling and a post-graduate cert in gender, sexuality and culture.
I have experience working within the women's sector (domestic violence, abuse and trauma) and also within the LGBTQI community. I am particularly interested in gender identity for both cis and trans people.
I also work with clients experiencing depression and anxiety and took part in a research project on depression, which won the PCCS prize awarded at the BACP conference in 2012.
I write reviews and articles, sometimes on health issues and also help others through blocks in creativity and motivation.
I have many years experience working with older people and young people.
