About me

I offer one to one counselling in my private practice in Portglenone on outskirts of Ballymena.

Thank you for visiting my profile. I am a fully qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I am a fully registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy). I am an experienced therapist who offers a confidential, open, honest and non-judgemental style of therapy.

I am an integrative counsellor; which means I work using a variety of approaches to suit the unique needs of the client,(Person Centred/Humanistic and CBT). I will take time getting to know my client and work in a collaborative manner to facilitate needs at that time, offering guided discovery.

As a Behavioural support worker (in my full time job) I offer a confidential counselling service for children, teenagers, individual adults, couples and families. I offer a safe space, and time for you to explore any issues/problems that has brought you to counselling.

I begin all sessions with a telephone call consultation when I can advice you if I can help or sign post you on to somewhere else that would be more appropriate for you. My aim through out the therapy will be to give you the tools to help yourself through difficult times and to equip you for later life.
