I am a qualified Counsellor / Psychotherapist.
I am a professional member of the BACP, this should assure you that I work safely and ethically.
I will offer you a safe space both physically and psychologically to explore , and working together at your own pace, we will work through your worries, anxieties, trauma, bereavement or losses.
I believe we all have our answers within but sometimes we need a little help from someone who isn’t emotionally involved. I will offer a listening ear, not being judgemental and working with your best interests at heart, exploring and working through your emotional struggles.
I am trained in many Humanistic models, mainly the Person Centred Approach, CBT, Psychodynamic and Art Therapy.
I work Integratively; this means I draw from each model and work in a way that suits you best. You are in control of the pace that we work and what you want to explore or work through in our sessions.

I attend many additional workshops and training courses ; this is known as continuing professional development (CPD). This is a BACP professional requirement. Although I enjoy learning and educating myself about new strategies and techniques.
My training and learning is always ongoing, in life we never stop learning.
I have worked in different educational establishments as a school counsellor. My experience also includes working with Bereavement & loss, working with older people in a Carers setting and supporting vulnerable people at Mind.
Previous to my counselling training, I worked in Health and Social Care.
This is now over 30 years ago. From a very young age I was determined and destined to help and support people.
Although counselling is slightly different, I’ll be supporting you through your journey. At times it may be challenging, even making the first phone call is one of the hardest steps, then along with finding the courage to turn up! Take one step at a time, like I said earlier, at your own pace.
Feel free to contact me or drop me a line, whichever is easiest for you.
