I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and fully insured.
My work with clients centres on understanding the nature of their distress and finding ways of making their distress manageable - and giving them the mental strength to overcome.
Clients come to me with anxiety, stress, depression, or unhelpful coping behaviours such as excessive reliance on things like alcohol, eating, gambling etc. I also help clients come to terms with past hurts and change or upset in life such as relationship problems, separation, divorce or the death of someone close.
I am there for my clients to take the time to compassionately understand them - with a trained, experienced and professional eye – with the goal of offering practical and valuable support to help them move on with confidence in their lives.
Qualifications and Experience
I obtained my BA (Hons) degree in Psychology in 1993 and completed my counselling training at Keele University in 2015 and hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology – which is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a Registered Member of BACP.
