07852520238 / 07852520238
I am a qualified integrative counsellor with over five years experience of counselling practice. My fees are very competitive and I see clients in an a tranquil and comfortable consulting room in the centre of Cambridge. Evening appointments available.
I strongly believe that counselling can bring about life-changing growth and transformation for an individual. It can also provide expanded freedom and choice which in turn leads to an enhanced quality of life.The substantial personal rewards that counselling can offer to clients draws me to work in this field. I always strive to treat my clients with compassion, sensitivity and respect and create a safe and non-judgemental space where they can address their concerns at their own pace.
I have an Upper Second BA(Hons) degree in Modern Iberian and Latin American Regional Studies from University College, University of London and hold an M. Phil in Latin American Studies from the University of Cambridge. I obtained a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in August 2013. I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for children and young people at a Cambridgeshire secondary school between 2012 and 2016. I have also been counselling many adults since May 2015 at Sky Blue, an independent, Cambridgeshire based organisation that provides low-fee counselling therapy.
I also work for the YMCA Trinity Group as an Intervention Worker. I have delivered resilience-building programmes that involve working with groups and mentoring individual pupils at various primary schools and a secondary school.
I take a very active interest in Continuing Professional Development for counsellors and am always keen to expand my knowledge and skills in order to improve my service to clients. I regularly attend study days and events with this aim in mind.
