About me

As a qualified counsellor I specialise in working with the 8-25 age group. I have experience of working with two counselling organisations. My counselling orientation is the Person Centred Approach to counselling.I use integrative approaches, to include Brief Solution Focused Therapy, T A, Gestalt therapy and I also work creatively. I also attend supervision once a fortnight.

I started my counselling career 6 years ago, completing my training at Nottingham University. Prior to this my career was in Youth work for 25 years. I have been able to transfer many skills and knowledge from my youth work to working with young people in the counselling profession.

Some of my specialist training has been in the areas of Anger management, Coping with Anxiety, Depression, Bullying prevention, Eating Disorders, Self Harm and Low-Self-esteem.

Counselling is about how you are feeling,the difficulties you are experiencing, the emotional load you are carrying, and is a means to help you heal from any pain and problems. Counselling is also an opportunity to help you understand yourself and how you relate to others, becoming more aware of the causes of your problems. This helps you understand yourself better and provides you with some techniques to help you cope.

The counselling sessions are for fifty minutes and take place weekly.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a professional PG Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People. also a PG Advanced Certificate in Counselling Practice. I have been counselling young people for 6 years and have applied for my full accreditation with the British Association of Counselling Practice.

I am experienced in working with the following range of problems:- social anxiety, other anxieties, panic, depression, self harm, eating disorders, low self-esteem, abuse/bullying, anger, stress, unemployment, sexuality, gender issues, phobias, and addictions.

Further information

I am available on Monday's 10am-8pm. Tuesday 10am-1pm, Wednesday's 5pm-9pm.Saturday 10am-1pm. When clients make initial contact with me about their availability to attend counselling I will return contact within 24 hours. We can then arrange a time and day. If a client wishes to obtain further details about counselling, we can then discuss this prior to a counselling session.

At the first counselling session clients will be asked to sign a working contract with myself. This will agree a therapeutic working relationship between counsellor and client. Clients will also complete a questionnaire to outline their problems and how these have impacted on them during the last week. Clients can terminate counselling at anytime during the counselling period. During the last counselling session clients will be asked to complete an evaluation, outlining their experience of counselling, and if they need further help from another agency.
