- I believe that everyone has the potential to live happy and fullfilling lives and that sometimes life itself can get in the way. My aim is to support clients and enable them to become self-sufficient, resiliant, and be more confident to deal with the every day challenges life presents.
- I work predominantly from a person centred model and draw on other models and techniques depending on the clients needs. I offer a safe and confidential environment that provides a space for clients to express and explore fully any issues presently in their life.
- I taught counselling from Level 1 through to Diploma level for four years and therefore have a very in depth knowledge of how to work with clients to give them the best experience. I will be along side you as you begin your journey of self discovery and support you when the journey becomes difficult. If you have an issues that is causing you distress it may feel daunting to tackel it on your own. Shareing it with someone in a safe and confidential place where there is no judement can in itself ease the pressure and enable you to move forward.
- As a school counsellor i worked with young people between the ages of 11 and 16. I did one to one counselling and group work on confidence building, bullying and peer mentoring. The issues raised ranged from the above issues and also domestic violence, sexual/physical abuse, self-harm, eating disorders and many others. Sometimes it was fear of exams and what sort of future lay ahead for them.
- No judgement, no repercussions not a friend nor a family member. I would be along side you in your journey, supporting and enabling you for as long as you want me to be.
- I am a registered therapist with the BACP details of which you can find on the BACP register website.
