About me

Hi I'm Chrissie and I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and psychotherapist, who believes that you know yourself best and have the ability to find the answer for yourself. We will work together to find ways to overcome obstacles and improve your life by exploring your inner thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences, and having a better understanding of them.

I provide a confidential, safe space where you can feel heard, understood and respected without feeling judged. Having space to explore your concerns, issues, dilemmas and fears.

You will have time for yourself, where you are important without having to worry about anyone else. I will work with you at your pace, ensuring your autonomy throughout the time we have together to ensure you are happy with the outcome.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), I work within set guidelines of a governing body that is an accredited member of the Professional Standards Authority. I undertake regular continuous professional development workshops and keep up to date with the latest research and developments in the counselling and psychotherapy sector.

My Experience

I have worked in general counselling practices since 2015, working with clients from teens to retirement age. I have a wealth of experience in working with clients who have relationship issues, bereavement issues, attachment issues and those who are affected by anxiety, panic attacks, fear, anger, rage, depression, low self-esteem, low self-confidence and disability / health issues. I also work with clients who have experienced sexual and/or physical abuse, domestic violence and have experience using the “rewind” technique for people with post traumatic stress disorder.

I previously worked as a counsellor at The University of Leicester, and volunteered as a counsellor at Cruse bereavement care and Mosaic disability service for three years.
