Counselling is about us building a relationship, where you feel free to talk through whatever you may wish to discuss, in a confidential and non-judgemental setting. Issues can vary from: relationships, identity, stress, anxiety, or depression, to a whole variety of other issues. Duration can vary from short term focussed work, to more long term personal development. I work using a variety of methods, adapted to individual needs.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor, and have many years’ experience of working in the caring professions as both a teacher and a counsellor.
I work as a counsellor in a GPs surgery, with referrals on a range of issues; in private practice with clients seeking either counselling or personal development; and in a school with young people from 11 to 18.
I have particular expertise working with children and young people with Special Educational Needs (Autism, Aspergers, ADHD, etc) who are struggling around issues of inclusion in mainstream education; and offer a range of services including tutoring, mentoring and counselling.
