About me

I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work with adults and also Children and Young People, having experience working in a Primary School setting and both Community-based settings and the private sector. I also have experience working with Employment Assistance Providers offering therapeutic support and am a sessional Counsellor working with Tessa, an organisation offering therapy to adoptive parents.

Deciding to get help can sometimes feel like a big step however, it can be an important first step on the journey of change. Counselling is like an investment in yourself and offers a way to gain perspective on your behaviour, emotions and relationships. It also provides a means of expressing your feelings in a non judgemental setting and helps identify patterns of thinking. I firmly believe in every adult, adolescent or child I work with and value them as individuals, offering counselling which reflects this. I provide a confidential, caring and safe 'space' to explore whatever issue has led to you seek counselling. I am experienced in working with a range of issues including relationship issues, loss and bereavement, self-harm, bullying, self-esteem, trauma and abuse including childhood sexual abuse, post traumatic stress disorder and anxiety and depression.

Sometimes even finding the right words to express the issues can be difficult and when appropriate I can also offer alternative therapies such as Sand Tray therapy and other creative therapy tools which can be used with adults as well as children and adolescents.
