I am a person centred counsellor, and a qualified supervisor, I have worked for many years with clients who were going through difficult times in their lives, and have spent the last four years working with GP's,. covering all aspects of counselling. I have experience with drug and alcohol addiction,IVF counselling and also with people who have unplanned pregnancies or have experienced termination of pregnancy. I have an interest in working with people who have been through the trauma of Child sexual abuse, as well as a variety of other difficulties, including bereavement, anxiety and depression.
I appreciate that coming to a counsellor is a very hard step to take, but hopefully with my support you can find a way through your difficulties and you can discover that life can still be full of promise and interest beyond the challenging place you are presently in.
