I will not desert you or abandon you I will be by your side for as long as I'm needed. We can work together planning and organizing the sessions remember this is your hour of counselling you are in control.

I have a level 4 diploma in person-centred counselling. I qualified in 2007 and have 17 years of experience working with a range of different people. I have worked in drop-in centres for women also with men and women who are homeless.  I specialize in many issues including Depression, Anxiety, domestic violence, addictions both alcohol and drug work. Various mental health issues including self-harm, Bi-Polar and eating disorders. I have worked a lot with people who are grieving both for humans and their pets.  Losing a pet which I know through personnel experience can be very painful. Some people feel as much pain losing a pet as they would losing a member of their family, Pets are like members of our families.

Right now  I know there are so many people needing support and guidance. Unsure of which way to turn.  Well, I'm here! don't be nervous feel free to make contact with me I will answer any questions or worries you have. I strive to help people heal and move past emotional crisis in life through my specialities. Let my expertise with my gentle and caring nature help you. So you can get through the challenges your facing right now and move towards a more peaceful and joyful future. I have a deep passion for helping people through the emotional impact that causes you problems in your life bringing many people to heal emotional wounds to reconnect with life and move forward to a happier life. I help my clients attain a happier healthier and more rewarding life. I believe a better way forward is by acknowledging what you want and looking at how you are going to achieve this with a qualified counsellor. I also believe that all my client’s basic needs are of the utmost importance, therefore, I offer a non-judgemental, empathic honest and genuine counselling approach with a safe place to open up and share their stories which have brought them to contact a counsellor today.

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration.
