I am an experienced qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering a confidential, accepting and compassionate service.
My aim is to provide a warm, welcoming and effective counselling experience, working alongside you, empathically, at a pace that suits you.
With over 25 years working with people from all walks of life I am committed to developing genuine therapeutic relationships, that are helpful and supportive to my clients.
I work from a person centred theoretical base, with an integrative approach, that draws upon many counselling theories and resources, including mindfulness, meditation, creative arts therapy and the outdoor environment.
When you decide to try counselling its a brave step - you are already facing, processing and exploring difficult personal situations, loss or relationship issues and you may be feeling anxious, sad, angry, overwhelmed, lost or stuck.
Counselling can help us to recover from ongoing distress and move us forward during challenging times and life changes; it can lead to greater self awareness, assist us in reaching our potential, and have a positive impact on the continuous management and maintainance of our emotional, physical and spiritual wellness.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and work in accordance with the Ethical Framework:
Offering Face to Face, Telephone, Online Counselling and Walk and Talk therapy.
I work from the Torus Wellbeing Clinic in Stoke on Trent with Walk and Talk sessions outdoors in parks and green spaces around Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire.
