About me

I am a qualified and experienced Relational Counsellor who is a registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

In July 2014 I was awarded the Dean's Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Psychological Therapies and Mental Health.

I trained as an Integrated Relational Counsellor / Supervisor at Leeds Metropolitan University. As a relational counsellor I support clients in exploring their individual relationships and help enhance change to their relational pattern.

During my counsellor training I learnt various integrative theories to work alongside the relational approach. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an approach using practical techniques  i.e. life lines, mind maps, relational maps and role play. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy into the therapeutic relationship if you prefer different methods of expressing how you feel.

Transactional Analysis Therapy is an approach that helps you understand your responses about various feelings about self and others. This approach identifies the role you use (parent, adult, child) when in certain situations. You may not be able to explain why your behaviour changes but I will support you through the therapeutic journey and help you gain an understanding of why this happens.

Client experience is working with children, adolescents, adults of all ages, couples, families and clients with educational needs.

My counselling experience is working with clients whom would like to explore issues relating to Relationship Problems, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Pre and Post Bereavement Issues, Anxiety, Pain Management, Coming to Terms with Disability, Working Through Trauma, Low Self Esteem, Eating Disorders, Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse, Verbal Abuse, Psychosis, Bullying and Coping with a Terminal Illness'.

I work to the BACP guidelines ensuring empathy, integrity and effective change to a client’s well-being.
