I am Deaf & bi-lingual in English and British Sign Language (BSL) and work with both deaf and hearing individuals and couples. I am sensitive to the access needs of deaf people with a range of communication styles including lipreading, Sign Supported English, British Sign Language, Visual-Frame and Hands on signing.
An experienced Humanistic counsellor, I am committed to BACP's Code of Ethics. I am in regular supervision and undertake ongoing professional development.
I am also a general member of COSRT and abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice.
Counselling offers a space to explore personal issues in privacy, confidence and safety. My approach is Humanistic, person-centred and integrative, responding to your particular need. I offer unconditional support, time and space in which you can reflect and make sense of issues that are affecting your life, and explore options for change if this is your wish.
Please contact me if you would like to know more about counselling and what it involves. I am happy to discuss this with you in confidence and without obligation.
If you feel counselling might be for you, I can offer weekly sessions at an agreed time and day.
