About me

Hi no one said life was easy but sometimes life's challenges can be to much to cope with on our own, even if we have good support from family and friends, sometimes it's not enough, maybe talking to someone who isn't personally connected to the situation can be of benefit to you. I offer a confidential, non judgemental counselling service to children 5 onwards, young people and adults using a person centred approach , which means it's all sessions are client focused. Talking about your emotions and thoughts can be hard but I am here to give a listening ear, asking for help isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign of strength and courage.
In the first session we will work together to decide what you feel you need from counselling and if I am the best person to meet these needs. You will be able to make the choice for yourself if counselling is right for you and I will go into more depth on the therapeutic process on the initial session, giving you the opportunity to make an informed choice on whether counselling is for you.
I offer a professional service in the comfort of your own home or work space and I adhere to the codes of Ethics and Practices of the BACP, UK's leading professional  governing body.
Sessions last 50 minutes and usually offer 6 sessions then a review with the option to extend. Counselling is a personal experience and number of session will depend on your own requirements, counselling can last weeks, months or even longer, ultimately the decision will be made with your best interest and your collaboration.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work with children and young people in high school and primary setting, using Therapeutic play and Solution Focused Brief Therapy and use a Person Centred approach with adults. I have knowledge and basic training in CBT which I use to help adults and young people look at negative thought process, no one therapy fits all, it's about finding what you feel is right for you.
I have experience working with families and small groups with issues of anger and anxiety and continue my own professional development by keeping up to date with training and new developments in the counselling industry
