I am an experienced counsellor who works with a varied client group from children to retired adults. I have practised in schools, colleges, universities, worked in secure establishments and within charitable trusts.
I can offer a safe space following an initial free half hour introductory session to decide a way forward. My work is client led with an agreed number of initial sessions to explore the presenting issues?
My specialist areas of work are around harmful sexual behaviours, trauma and sexual abuse. I currently work with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, though am happy to discuss any area that is causing distress to a client.
I am a military veteran and can offer a service to clients and their families.
I can offer evening and weekend sessions for clients who work during the day.
Training, qualifications & experience
I began working in schools after gaining my Diploma in Integrative counselling in 2013. I have continued to work in schools, university settings, the NHS and charitable trusts with clients who present with a variety of psychological distress.
I offer an open, non judgemental respectful way of working with clients over an agreed number of sessions. Since gaining my BSc (Hons) I have worked with NHS clients in a community setting ranging from low levels of anxiety to high levels of distress including self harm and suicidal ideation.
Having my own therapy room enables me to be flexible to suit my clients needs.
