About me

 It can be the hardest thing realising that you need support in working through over-whelming daily challenges or trauma and I offer a safe and non-judgemental space to allow you to do that. As an Integrative Counsellor I offer a variety of techniques and we will always start with a Person-Centred approach to enable us to get to know each other and establish your individual needs. We will then include some Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other therapies which will be personalised to you.

My career has involved working with the elderly and Children and young People from birth to 25 years of age in a professional and voluntary capacity and I have learnt a lot about the pressures of daily life for families. I trained as a Primary School teacher and subsequently worked for Northamptonshire County Council training and supporting childcare providers to offer meaningful provision to support their social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. More recently in my role as a volunteer working with 11- to 25-year-olds it appears many of these pressures come from school, exams, peer pressure, and aspirations for the future. Not to mention the effect Covid 19 has had on their well-being. My training and life experiences have also enhanced my ability to understand, and work with adults. I believe that relaxation is key to helping to relieve many of these pressures, and with your permission may include some meditation or hypnotherapy to your treatment. Another method I might use to explore your well-being is the PERMA model, which assumes well-being can be truly met through five avenues: Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment. We might also explore some past events that have affected you. I work from a private clinic in Daventry and I also offer online counselling via Zoom. Although our initial discussion might be by telephone, I would prefer face-to-face either in person or online, as I believe it helps to build a rapport if we can see each other. Whatever you choose I offer an empathic, safe and non-judgmental environment that enables you to feel self-aware and empowered to make positive changes to your life.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
