(MNCS) FDSC Counselling

About me

I am a qualified therapist, working in the Mid Ulster area specializing in a variety of different issues.  Prior to private practice I acquired extensive expertise working in a medical practice for a couple of years. This has helped guide my practice into a more holistic approach.

I am continually enhancing on my Therapeutic Skills and Professional Knowledge through the use of CPD. Researching the best methods that produce the best results and continually fine tuning my self to ensure that you receive the best treatment programme from myself. I aim to offer the highest quality of service encased in a soft, warm, friendly approach.

If you are finding yourself in a place of struggle and worry at the minute, you don't need to stay there. I can offer you a way out. I can help guide you through the process of becoming you again and give yourself the life you so rightfully deserve. 

Working with myself allows you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings regarding issues and concerns you may have in an environment where you feel safe, comfortable and hopeful.

You are always one decision away from a different life, remember, if the challenge exists, so to must the solution!

If you have any further queries please do get in touch.
