About me

Counselling - Humanistic Counselling offering Person Centred, Existential and Gestalt therapy.

Are you looking for a warm approachable therapist to talk to in a safe confidential space? I believe that the relationship between myself as the therapist and you as a client is key to effective therapy. If you need to talk and explore your issues with someone who will listen with empathy whilst enabling you to develop self-awareness and self-compassion, please contact me to see if we can work together.

I am a fully insured and qualified registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP).

I work with children and adults in my private practice and in school settings (schools please see my website for information on 'Therapy in Schools'). In addition I have a special interest in counselling individuals on the Autistic Spectrum, those with Learning Difficulties and Language and Communication issues.

Coach House Counselling offers face-to-face counselling with both daytime and evening appointments available. As a qualified professional, I adhere to the BACP Ethical framework and it's values and principles.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am professionally qualified, with a Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling (FdSc). I have also undertaken further specialist training with Place2Be, a successful charity which champions children's mental health and well-being.

I come from a background of working in health and education and believe mental health and well-being is key to enabling us to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Counselling empowers us to support ourselves, with self-knowledge and self-compassion.

I work with adults and children in both private practice and school settings, with experience of supporting clients with a wide range of issues and challenges. All counselling is tailored to individual need, providing personalised support through a warm and engaging therapeutic relationship.

When working with children I use a child centred approach based around attachment theory, incorporating the language of play and creativity to support the counselling process.

I also offer a school based counselling service called 'Therapy in Schools' - if you are a school, please see my website for further information (www.coachhousecounselling.net)

In addition, I have experience of supporting individuals with language and communication difficulties, autistic spectrum and learning difficulties and can differentiate to meet individual needs.

I am experienced in helping clients who are finding it difficult to cope with:

* Anxiety
* Depression
* Relationship issues
* Low self-esteem
* Addictions
* Stress
* Trauma
* Panic attacks
* Self-harm
* Bereavement
* Family break-down
* Redundancy

These are examples of common issues, it is not intended to be an conclusive list. Please contact me with any other issues you may be experiencing to see if I can help!
