About me

I work from offices based in Magherafelt and Cookstown and have gained extensive experience working with clients in a medical practice before moving into private practice. I am a Qualified Integrative Counsellor and I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (MNCS). I provide a warm, safe, professional and confidential environment working to BACPs code of ethics.

It is my ultimate aim as a counsellor to facilitate in the process of personal growth allowing my clients to become their True Authentic Self with comfort and ease. I aim to provide guidance in acquiring new skills for life, to help you better manage life's difficulties and to embrace the development of new meaningful relationships.

Being an integrative counsellor means i incorporate 3 main therapies, Person Centred, CBT, and Psychodynamic, into my work, which gives you more of a choice as to how you want to look at your issues, and creates more flexibility as to how you would like to move forward. With an Integrative Counsellor you have the advantage of blending  together  different elements of specific therapeutic tools and approaches, which are best suited to each individual client need.

Building a relationship with my client is key and helps my clients to feel respected, heard and accepted.  I will listen empathically to your issues with no judgement and full acceptance. It also gives you the opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings regarding issues and concerns you may have in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment. Through this my clients are then able to explore there issues with comfort.
