I understand that beginning this journey may not always be easy and the first step can often be the most difficult. I will offer you support and empathy in a warm, friendly and caring environment irrespective of your circumstances.
Since qualifying in 2009, I have gained experience of working within the NHS, the Youth Service and private practice. I have counselled adults and young people in many areas including:
- relationship difficulties - self, partners, families, social.
- low self esteem - confidence, self worth, hopelessness.
- depression - low mood, feeling hopeless, guilt, difficulty in making decisions.
- anxiety - panic attacks, stress.
- suicidal thoughts
- eating and body image
- pet bereavement
I am a person centred counsellor which means my interest is in meeting the holistic you - the person your life to date has lead you to become.
I will work with you to explore your feelings and how your experiences shape your thoughts and actions. You will gain a better understanding of what makes you, you. Finding ways to reach your own solutions, enabling you to live a more resourceful life. Alternatively, I could simply be that listening, non judgemental, confidential ear that you just don't have elsewhere.
I am dedicated to the counselling process and wholly appreciate the rewards that a successful client/counsellor relationship can bring about.
I have five years experience as a youth worker, and work in a pastoral role in an educative setting. I have a particular interest in supporting the emotional well being of young people and have recently qualified as a family counsellor, an area which I find both interesting and very rewarding.
Please feel free to try a 30 minute introductory session which could continue into your first full 50 minute chargeable session should you wish to do so.
I am conveniently located in Salford, easily accessible from the East Lancs Road and the M602 (close to Salford Royal Hospital). I have a newly purpose built, outside office which is welcoming, relaxing and comfortable.
I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and conduct sessions within the BACP Ethical Framework and in line with BACP guidelines.
Please call or email me for an informal chat if there is anything you are uncertain about.
I look forward to hearing from you.
