About me

I work extensively with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, couples and families, and bereavement, and am easily accessible to areas around and near Belfast, Lisburn, Moira, Ballinderry and Crumlin. I also work with ADHD and autistic spectrum adults and children, traumas of many kinds, spiritual considerations (fully respecting any or no faith), help with feelings of guilt, shame, anger, help with extreme emotions and self-harm, OCD, and dream analysis. My skills also includes yoga, Pilates, and mindfulness training.

** I am currently forming DBT groups in the Lisburn area. Contact if interested.

I am an Integrative Counsellor; put simply this means that my training allows me to work in more than one type of therapy and am therefore able to tailor counselling to meet your needs. I'm a qualified yoga and Pilates instructor which fuels my passion for working with body and mind. But this part of my practice does not come up in the counselling room at all, unless you request.

I have worked for the NHS, counselling Bipolar, borderline, ADHD, paranoia, and sexual abuse. I also have experience from a charity organisation that offered counselling for anxiety, addictions, bereavement, domestic abuse and relationship issues. In my private practice I have helped people from all walks of life with a very broad range of issues. Currently a lot of clients are coming to me looking for help for family issues, teens, children, also with depression (low mood/feeling sad), stress problems, anxiety, anger, work relationship issues, together with traumas both big and small. My research interests include trauma work, how the body remembers, and best techniques to release these negative influences so you can have your best life.

You can be assured of the highest standards of discretion and confidentiality. I also take equal opportunities seriously and embrace the principles of diversity and inclusivity.

Whatever your concerns or issues you will find me to be supportive in a non judgemental and considerate way. I see it as an honour to help during your time of distress and look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
