70A High Street
I am a qualified, registered BACP counsellor and have been practicing since 2009. I offer warmth, sensitivity, integrity and acceptance to my clients. As the client, your best interests are at the heart of the counselling and will guide how we work together. I have had considerable success helping clients with a wide range of issues; including depression, anxiety, bereavement and relationship problems. I have a breadth and depth of experience gained from several years of consistent work in the public, charitable and voluntary sectors. I work in an open, collaborative, professional and boundaried way; abiding by the BACP's Ethical Framework.
I offer flexible hours, including daytime, evenings and Saturdays.
Should you contact me, we would discuss your needs & arrange to meet for an introductory session. This session gives you the opportunity to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a level 5 Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am committed to continuing professional development in order to broaden my skills and enhance my practice. I am educated to degree level - MA (Hons) History, 1990 - and found my way to counselling in my late thirties. In training, I counselled refugees, most of whom had suffered severe loss, trauma & violence. I also volunteered for a NHS bereavement service and for a local charity supporting young people's mental health.
Between 2011 and 2017, I counselled part-time for a charity supporting young people's sexual and emotional health. I currently work as a school counsellor in a secondary school; a position I have held since 2014.
