About me

Many clients have stated that simply having someone to talk to who is outside their circle of friends was enough to help.

I was a registered member of the BACP for approx 6 years but have now lapsed the membership so work indipendently.

Counselling using the PCA (Person Centred Approach)  offers a safe and secure environment for a client to explore issues that are disturbing them. It is the intention of counselling to help a client work autonomously over time.

To help create self confidence and autonomy we ensure that the client is comfortable and relaxed. The Person Centred Counsellor would ensure that no pressure would be put on you to divulge anything you are not ready to disclose at this time.

Some clients prefer to have a less public setting so I see clients at my home. 

A counselling hour is 50 minutes.

I can supply relaxation music CDs, (currently £5.00) to aid with your resting periods These are available whether or not you take up counselling with me.

I can see you any time up to 7:00pm at night from 10am in the morning. 7 days a week.

Training, qualifications & experience

I worked at Rotherham and Barnsley Mind from May 2011 till 2015 I resigned from Mind to persue my ever building private practice. I completed and passed the Level 3 Counselling training at Rotherham college of Arts and Technology and progressed immediately onto the Level 4 Diploma which I passed and was awarded Student of the year at the cap and gown ceremony. I left Mind in October 2015 to pursue and expand my private practice. I have completed and passed training in domestic abuse/domestic violence and bereavement.

I run a private counselling practice from my home,

I have taught coping strategies to groups (my last clients were MENCAP) to help with coping strategies.

I have also worked with occupational health companies to help employees/clients on their road back to work after trauma.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have not clicked all the areas of help that can be offered as I feel this may appear to exclude.

I believe that the presenting issue may actually not be the real cause of concern and prefer to discuss client issues with him or herself.

If anything is worrying you please email or call me. If your issue is not listed I may still be able to help.
