Throughout my working life, I have been involved in enabling people to grow and change. Along with my integrative counselling, I am also a nurse working in Occupational Health supporting employees coping with acute and chronic medical conditions, and mental and psychological issues.
I am a professionally qualified counsellor and hypnotherapist.
I am a member of the National Counselling Society for both Counselling and Hypnotherapy. I am bound by and adhere to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
My knowledge and skills have developed through my psychotherapeutic work in both private practice and in my time working at MIND. I believe that there is always something new to learn working in this field and make a regular commitment to on-going professional development and clinical supervision.
I work with clients from the age of 16 on an individual basis dealing with a wide range of issues. The length of time clients work with me varies according to the needs of each person. I deal with issues such as:
- Relationship issues
My Personal Approach
I am a trained integrative counsellor and have a PGC in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness. I will have an individual approach to your needs based on how you see yourself, others and the world. By reflecting on our thinking, feeling and behaviours we can address those aspects which are blocking us from being able to address current difficulties or perhaps from achieving our potential.
I will share this knowledge with you where it would be helpful, to enable you to develop tools that you can use in everyday life beyond the completion of our work.
