Further information

So how did I become a Counsellor?

When I struggled to cope, I felt alone, as though I had reached rock bottom and could see no way out of the dark place I was in. I had no energy, getting dressed was a huge achievement, even getting downstairs some days was difficult for me. To cope with the simplest of things would send my anxiety through the roof. I felt as though I was stuck at the bottom of a dark well with no way out.

I then received Counselling. During the sessions I began to learn who I was again, and gained the courage, and self-esteem to make the changes I needed to function more positively and move forward with my life. I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, and counselling gave me the resources to fight the darkness

*********************

After having personal experiences of Counselling, realising the benefits and having such a positive outcome, I decided to retrain as a Counsellor. I wanted to give the support and help to others as I had received.

During my training as a Humanistic Counsellor, I had a placement as a student Counsellor for a local Bereavement Charity. I worked as a trainee for 2 years and a further 3 years once qualified. After completing my training I started my own private practice, and in 2019 I moved my Counselling Practice into the heart of Bridgnorth Town. I have continued with my training in many areas since qualifying, becoming an Integrated Counsellor. I am always looking to expand my knowledge so that I may provide a bespoke Counselling service to my clients dependant upon their own individual circumstances and requirements, and adjust my therapeutic methods to suit each individual client.
