I am a registered member of BACP. I offer a safe space where you are able to talk in confidence and with confidence.
Life can be overwhelming at times and it's good to talk about what's going on. I like to work with you to find your own answers and to understand what is going on for you. We don't always know what we are thinking or feeling until we say it out loud and in order to do that you need to be able to trust who you are talking to. Nobody likes feeling judged or being told what to do!
My aim is to offer you time to reflect on where you are and maybe explore things that have happened in the past. It is my belief that while counselling can't change your circumstances it can change how you react to them.
My counselling training began when I worked for the Cerebral Palsy Helpline, a small team of 6. I then married a farmer and started a family. I know how tough agriculture can be, and also how rewarding. For the past five years I have worked a lot with adolescents.
I am a Christian working in a person centred way. I won't bring my faith into the counselling room unless invited. I believe there is always a reason behind our actions. Behaviour can often be a cry for help and understanding.
