About me

Hi, I am a fully qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I am based in Evington Leicester with easy access for parking. I have a lot of experience working with a range of different issues such as depression, bereavement and loss, anxiety, self harm, addictions, self esteem, low confidence, domestic violence,  parental separation and separation.

As well as my private practice where I work a lot with adults and young people I also work as a therapist for a charitable organisation providing counselling for Young People 11- 18 years. Within this organisation I  have experience of working with young adults who have been  in the care setting temporarily or permanently, I also work with adults and young people who have experienced sexual exploitation. Within my roles I have experience of working with many different issues for example: low mood and anxiety also people being in crisis.

As well as being a face to face therapist, I am also experienced in providing online therapy through video or instant messaging and telephone counselling. These ways of delivering therapy often work really well with people who think they might feel uncomfortable talking face to face in the room and people who might be housebound or struggle with anxiety.

I also have experience as a face to face counsellor of working in a Secondary school setting and a local charity that support women who have suffered sexual abuse.

Within my roles I have experience working with trauma, bereavement, abuse, anxiety, depression, self harm and other complex issues including working with people who are in crisis.

I believe the relationship is key to the work, and I offer a non judgemental, safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and I will work with you to bring about changes you feel you want to make.

We all feel lost and stuck at some time in our lives, often we don't know how or why we became lost and stuck don't suffer in silence and alone, you don't need to.

How do I get started.

You can either call me or email me and we will set up your first session, during this session we will talk a little bit about what you would like to get from counselling, you can also decide if you think I am the right counsellor for you, we will also look over a contract then set up following sessions if you decide you would like to continue.

There is no definite amount of sessions you have to sign up for, counselling is about your own personal journey so you make the decision on what suits you best.
