I am an Accredited Counsellor with the National Counselling Society. I offer individual counselling therapy using a person centred approach. I am also trained in Cognitive Therapy and Solution Focused therapy. I am located within the Banbridge area of County Down. I have gained my Advanced Diploma in Counselling. I offer a relaxed and confidential service and believe in letting you share your story and I listen alongside you gaining some exploration along the way. I work towards the BACP's Ethical Framework.I have over 6 years experience practising as a Counsellor.
I have worked with young people residing in residential units of care and i have worked with individuals who have been experiencing very difficult experiences within their life ranging from Suicidal thoughts, Panic, Anxiety, Depression and many more. I offer a relaxed and confidential service I believe in letting the individual tell me their story from their perspective and consider it a real privilege for anyone to share their journey.
I offer individual counselling sessions lasting 50 minutes and i offer students a reduced rate of £30 for any personal therapy. I can discuss payment options with anyone who may not be able to afford full price.
