25 Gateside Street
I am a person centred counsellor and supervisor with experience of working in various settings and with a variety of issues.
I am down to earth and offer a genuine, non judgemental space where clients can explore their experience and make sense of their world. I enjoy working with various issues and I have a special interest in long term mental health issues, particularly hearing voices and self harm, and I currently manage a service, working with clients with these types of experiences, which I co founded in 2011.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and watching rubbish on T.V. I am also an animal lover and have recently begun keeping amphibians.
I believe that counselling should be accessible to people whatever their financial situation so I offer a sliding scale on my fees.
I can offer an initial half hour meeting at no cost which will give you a chance to decide whether I'm the right person for you at this time.
