Life can be complicated; occasionally our thoughts and feelings can become overwhelming. Sometimes it can be helpful to hear our thoughts out loud, in private with a professional; someone who is detached but caring, accepting and responsive.
As an experienced Counsellor, I hope to be able to help you untangle the knot, decide what changes are possible and clear a path to a more peaceful and contented life.
I practice mindfulness and offer it to my clients as a simple means of calming the mind and reducing anxiety and the symptoms of stress.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced person centered counsellor. I have worked in various settings including the NHS, both primary and secondary education and most recently a charity. Over the years I've gained a lot of experience of mental health issues, from children suffering stress and anxiety to eating disorders or dysfunctional family lives to adults with relationship difficulties, stress, depression and anxiety. More recently I have worked with military personnel suffering post traumatic stress and all the related issues that accompany it.
I practice mindfulness and offer it to clients either as pre-therapy or as part of a counselling session.
