Additional information

I offer a free initial meeting for both counselling and supervision.

The consultation will last around 20-30. This will usually take place via video call unless otherwise stated,

Sessions will be £30 or £25 for a student, this applies to both  Counselling and Supervision sessions.

Upon our first session, we will go through our agreement together, discussing how I work and explore your therapy goals or if this fulfills your expectation of supervision.

Further information

I am incredibly passionate about Counselling. I myself suffered a life changing injury, leaving me with long term disabilities and stripping me of my whole identity. I aim to initially narrow the gap creating a divide between disabled and abled people, as I believe this creates oppression within society, that can strip individuals of their autonomy. Working from a person-centred (PC) foundation, I utilise integrative counselling skills allowing me to create innovative frameworks unique to the individual. I understand how it can feel being pushed outside, fighting to get in and be recognised. I feel how truly detrimental this can be to a persons wellbeing, self-esteem and ultimately their entire being, them as a person. I aim to create an anti-oppressive safe space, promoting empowerment, where we can explore together.

After achieving a BA hons counselling studies degree at Grimsby University Centre my passion for counselling grew. Continuing to expand on existing knowledge I undertook independent research into equality and diversity, embracing anti-oppressive practice, within the BACP ethical standards. Leading me to contact the BACP directly and influence the May 2023 edition of ‘therapy today’, ‘access all areas’ which features an article by myself, furthermore, having the opportunity to present at a BACP conference.

My core values consist of being congruent, displaying unconditional positive regard (UPR) and empathy. Being transparent, enthusiastic and meeting the individuals needs is essential to a positive environment, building excellent rapport with clients, facilitating therapeutic growth and reaching full potential.

I promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond my current role. Eradicating prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010 tackling prejudice and promoting understanding in relation to people with disabilities.
