About me

I am a good listener, a genuine reliable person, empathic, non judgemental and have a love of helping others. I work with Person Centred Approach and have a wealth of experience having worked in various settings. I have had a varied caseload, dealing with differing mental health issues ranging from anxiety, depression, self harm, OCD, family issues, phobias, panic attacks, low self esteem and more. Each issue being dealt with on a personal level and helping the client to gain an understanding and move forward. I have worked for the past 5 years with Bereavement and Grief, I have experience with couples relationship issues and alcohol problems and have worked as an alcohol support worker. I have the ability to cope with emotional situations in a patient and calm manner.

Are you wanting to make changes in your life but unsure of where to start. I believe talking to someone outside your family and circle of friends gives you the freedom to be open and honest without the judgement.
