There are a lot of periods during our lives where we are left feeling not good enough, popular socially or clever enough. We are made to feel inadequate or a failure by others, their opinions of us are not necessarily based on us: it may be a reflection of their feelings of inadequacy. However they leave us feeling anxious and it niggles away at our core being. Working together we can find the best way to return you to better mental health and well being. Working in Northampton, Daventry and Leicester
I have worked in a general counselling practice, with clients from their late teens to retirement age and with both men and women. I also work with survivors of sexual abuse. I have a wealth of experience in working with clients who have problems in their relationships (whether it is family, friends or partners). Those clients who are affected by anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or fear. From my previous career I have a deep understanding of issues around violence, bullying, grief, bereavement, anger, abuse, addiction & loss of relationships, work or finance. I can offer support to clients who have addiction issues and use various methods for coping with the hard times in life.
I am a registered, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP(Accred)).
I am fully insured, undertake supervision (a requirement of BACP membership)
and adhere to the BACP ethical framework and codes of practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham, after a three year course, with a BSc(Hons) degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have worked as a counsellor in both Leicester and Market Harborough, with clients who have experienced a wide range of life issues, no matter what the type of worry or concern they are all very real to each person & are all equally as important to understand.
I have a great deal of experience in working with emergency service responders & the situations they deal with as well as grief & bereavement issues.
I am a guest presenter at De Montfort University; talking to students about sexual health and male abuse
