I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering a flexible service with appointments both during the day and evening. I provide a compassionate listening ear and can help you to get in touch with the resources you already have to find a way through your current distress.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained and qualified as a counsellor with a Higher Education Diploma in Person Centred counselling in 2005. I followed that up with an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London in 2008. I have also undertaken a number of short courses to enhance my skills in working with clients from diverse backgrounds and a number of presenting issues.
In addition I have a Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision and can offer supervision to both counsellors and individuals working in a range of helping professions.
I have worked in a generic counselling agency and one offering a support service to Carers. I also have experience of supporting individuals with mental health conditions as a volunteer with my local MIND association and as part of my role in the mental health department at Anglia Ruskin University from 2009-12.
I hold a current enhanced DBS check and am happy to work with all age groups.
What is Counselling?
Talking to a counsellor can help you to see a problem more clearly and explore possible solutions. Counselling aims to help you to help yourself and supports you in making the right decisions for you. It can give you a space to focus on issues that are important to you and help you to understand and
communicate better so that you can resolve the issues which brought you to counselling.
If you are unsure whether counselling is right for you, please get in touch. We can talk on the phone or you can arrange to come for a short meeting which I provide at no cost, when you can ask questions which will help you to make up your mind. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable talking to me. I offer a non-judgemental, compassionate approach and a safe and supportive space where you can explore the issues that have led you to seek help.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework.
