Working together we can find the best way to return you to better mental health and well-being. In Leicestershire and Northamptonshire; both Leicester and Daventry ideally located for clients from a wider area.
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
