I am a qualified person centred counsellor with over 15 years experience working for the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) NHS, and a registered member of BACP. I was involved working with children, young people and their families from many different backgrounds and cultures including work within Sure Start and Children's centres.
My experience has covered a number of areas including anxiety, phobias, depression, PND, abuse, self harm and attachment difficulties. Much of my work allows people to think about their feelings and emotions and why they behave in the way they do, and to guide them to work through their own issues in a calm, empathic, non-judgemental environment. This means they can have the courage to open up about their difficult experiences and build on their own inner strengths and increased self esteem to move forward and change the course of their lives.
I now work from my home in a quiet, calm environment with easy parking.

I have been involved with children and young people over a number of years in a variety of environments including the voluntary sector, CAMHS, Sure Start and Children's Centres, also working with adults both individually and group work. I like to think I'm an empathic and reflective person enabling people to feel at ease to talk more freely and express their emotions & feelings in a safe environment.
Please feel welcome to contact me and discuss how best we can work together as often the worst hurdle is opening up to a person you don't know. Once the ice is broken, it can feel a relief to have the space to talk safely and in private and to work out what you want to get out of the counselling.
