How do you choose the right counsellor?
I am an Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist with three Professional Bodies namely BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), IACP (The Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and HGI (The Human Givens Institute). Being accredited demonstrates quality Assurance and indicates that I am working to a strict code of ethics and I am answerable to the Professional Bodies.
I specialise in Anger Management, Bereavement, Relationships, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Addictions, Phobias including FEAR OF FLYING, Depression, Self-Esteem and Low Confidence. I work with Individuals, Couples (including same sex couples), teenagers and families. I deal with Work - Related issues, Disability, Sexuality issues and Professional and Personal Development.
I am a Person Centred Counsellor however I recognise that each individual is unique and so I developed my expertise to meet he needs of each individual, couple and family. I trained in and qualified as a Human Givens Therapeutic Practitioner. I also trained and qualified in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT. So I work eclectically with clients.
My Private Counselling Practice has been established since 2004 and continues to grow due to positive feedback from previous clients and other healthcare professionals. Appointments are available by day, evening and weekend.

I began my counselling career as a Bereavement Counsellor with Cruse Bereavement Care Belfast Branch where I worked for 10 years as counsellor, supervisor and facilitator of Suicide Support Groups.

This unique experience, working with bereavement throughout the "Troubles", has proved to be invaluable.

I trained as a Social Worker and was employed with The Southern Health and Social Care Trust working with Older People, Physical and Sensory Disability and Mental Health. I trained in Critical Incident Debriefing and was a member of the Critical Incident Team within the Trust.
