Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have a personal understanding of endometriosis and the realities of this painful disorder. This condition has led me to be more compassionate and understanding and that acceptance can be an emotional trauma.
I have a special interest in pet bereavement and having experienced a recent loss myself, my own grief acted as a catalyst to me becoming a pet bereavement counsellor, as I struggled to find support due to the lack of provision offered locally.
A pet is often at the centre of a loving family and can bring joy in so many ways. However, the loss of a pet can be heart breaking for the whole family. Sometimes, we are left not knowing which way to turn.
