I have experience of working with Adults, young people and children. If you suffer with depression, or anxiety, have suffered a bereavement or are struggling with relationships. Coming into counselling will enable you to have time and space to explore the difficulties you are facing.
I will work with you and tailor the counselling to your needs, with no criticism, or judgment in a safe environment. We will work together to enable you to find a better future, and a way of managing your feelings and the issues that bought you into counselling.
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor with sixteen years experience in the NHS and in private practice. I am happy to do short or long term work.
I have experience of working with families and children both in an NHS CAMHS team and in private practice. I offer shorter sessions for children and work closely with the parents to enable the children to find solutions to the distress they feel.
I am happy to work with trainee counsellors who are required to have their own therapy.
I work from home most of the time, in a warm and safe environment, There is plenty of parking and it is easily accessible.
