About me

I started my counselling career in Market Harborough thirteen years ago and have been working as a counsellor in Leicester, Market Harborough and surrounding areas ever since . I trained as a Person-Centred Counsellor at South Leicestershire College, Wigston but I also have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which allows me to integrate CBT into my work practice.

I am committed to providing counselling for the people of Leicester and Leicestershire in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I undertake therapy with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling them to enhance their life and to live it more fully.

As an experienced therapist I have helped clients who have experienced many types of difficulties including:

  • Stress
  • Divorce
  • Childhood abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Work related problems
  • Depression

I have a special interest in helping people who suffer with anxiety and panic attacks. It is an often hidden, un-talked about problem which can be extremely life limiting. I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Education and Counselling to help people get control of their panic attacks and to explore what is their cause.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started training as a Counsellor in 2003 following more than 20 years working as a Radiographer/Sonographer in both the UK and overseas, in the NHS and private healthcare. My interest in Counselling came about when I started an "in house" counselling skills training course at Leicester Royal Infirmary because I thought it would be useful to me as a Radiographer. I became hooked and wanted to learn more, so I carried on to train as a Person Centred Counsellor through South Leicestershire College. I completed my training placements firstly at the Market Harborough Counselling practice and later at Latham House GP practice in Melton Mowbray.

I qualified in 2007 and went on to work as a volunteer Counsellor for both Latham House, MIND in Corby and De Montfort University (DMU). As my counselling skills developed I studied for and gained an Advanced Diploma in CBT for Person Centred Counsellors at Warwick University. I now enjoy using what I consider the best bits of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) in my own practice. I achieved BACP Accreditation status in January 2011.

In 2015 I studied for and gained a Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision and began supervising volunteer counsellors at Leicester Women's Counselling Centre (LWCC). As well as this work at LWCC at the present time I work as a student Counsellor at DMU and as a Supervisor of trainee Counsellors on the Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling at University of Leicester.
