About me

Dear all,

In response to the current concerns regarding Coronavirus, we are to protect the health of the counselling facility’s and clients in therapy. With immediate effect I am withdrawing all face-to-face counselling, this is in line with government and BACP guidance.

I am therefore implementing sessions via phone, Skype, WhatsApp and FaceTime (what a world of technology). Please can you confirm if you would like to take up this means of counselling whilst the worlds pandemic continues.

These measures are to ensure we do not put either of ourselves or families at risk.

I will send out diary cancellations unless confirmation received for new means of counselling as the above means is completely down to your personal choice and preferences.

I will undoubtedly continue to ensure all of our sessions kept confidential no matter the means chosen from above, we will of course discuss how this will work should you choose to embrace the above.

However prior committing to any of the above, that you have a space where you’ll be comfortable and have the privacy to speak freely and openly to continue sharing your journey. I will do my upmost to ensure there is a smooth transition from face-to-face to a remote working as possible.

Any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please take care of each other especially in this difficult time.

Further information

I'm a qualified BACP Counsellor with my own insurance and individual membership status.

I also abide by the BACP ethical frame work. I currently work with adults, children and young people. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential counselling relationship where your feelings, thoughts and emotions are at the centre of our work together.  I am qualified to Diploma level in Person Centred Counselling which means that I concentrate on you as an individual and your needs however I draw on my knowledge of other therapeutic approaches to best suit the needs of my clients.  Most importantly, I hope my down to earth yet professional approach will enable you to relax and to put you at ease which is particularly helpful when disclosing difficult life experiences

I have worked in mental health services for eleven years this includes four academic years as a school counsellor and in the public sector and two years working in private practice.                               This has given me the opportunity not only to work with young people and staff on a wide range of issues such as anxiety, SEN, self-harm, depression, sexual health, sexuality, self-esteem, gender issues, bereavement, difficult relationships, family breakdown and trauma but I also deliver play therapy sessions for primary age children as well as consultations with parents and carers. I really believe In supporting young people work towards making positive step towards reaching their potential. I'm very creative with my work, not everyone find it easy to come in and open up.

Building a positive working relationship is important t to me. I'm very passionate about creating positive counselling experiences for people in the hope that together we can change a culture of not talking.

If you need a safe confidential space to share your past, present or future then the space I offer May just be the place for you.
