About me

Over the years, I have gained extensive experience working with Children, Young People & Adults within a variety of roles & settings. As a trained Teacher, Mentor, Support Worker and qualified Counsellor I have supported individuals with many of life's issues/concerns.  Throughout my career I have always wanted to support others and feel that my background has enabled me to offer individuals a breadth of life experience alongside professional knowledge and expertise.      

How I work
I aim to support you within the Counselling process, by having a genuine regard for your well-being, and by providing a safe, non-judgemental, confidential environment, where you can openly discuss your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. As a trained counsellor, I will actively listen, engage and work with you, aiming to help you have a better understanding of yourself and others, effectively empowering you to find your own way forward, in a way that you feel is best.

At the core of my work sits a Humanistic Person Centred ethos, paramount for me is the building of the relationship, establishing trust, warmth and providing a safe space underpin my practice. Alongside this as an Integrative Counsellor I am able to offer several theoretical approaches dependent upon your needs, inclusive of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness & Creative therapy. I believe "One shoe does not fit all" and that every individual who enters into counselling requires individual counselling.
