About me

We all experience difficulties in life, no-one escapes it. I trained to become a counsellor because i have struggled through bad times and learnt valuable life lessons as a result. I would like to help and support you on your journey because i understand the value of counselling through hard times.

I consider myself to be a warm, caring person and my clients tell me they feel this in our sessions together. This helps them to relax and feel understood. It really does help to talk to someone who doesn't know you, who won't be effected by what you say or disclose. You will be surprised how you can view your problems differently when you are away from the situation causing you stress.

I have been practising for 4 years now. I have heard some stories and supported my clients through all kinds of lifes tests and traumas. I am a humanistic counsellor which means that i help people to make sense of their feelings, realise their own self-worth and reach individual potential. Being valued as a person, without being judged can help someone to accept who they are, and reconnect with themselves and others around them.

I enjoy working with all aspects of counselling, however we all have our own specific areas that interest us on a deeper level so i specialise in couples counselling and alcohol dependency. I run a service called WPAC (Worcestershire Private Alcohol Counselling) which helps and supports anyone who is experiencing difficulties with alcohol, or anyone who is affected by someone elses drinking.
