About me

I help and support people in making sense of themselves, and their situations, both at home and at work. We can explore relationships with family members and partners. Together we can work through stressful situations which may be causing fear and unhappiness. Coping with difficulties can be very hard, particularly if you are feeling alone and unwell. I am able to provide a safe and confidential space, from which a trusting relationship may develop.Talking about issues relieves stress and pressure, and may reduce feelings of anxiety, depression and isolation.

I support people through either short- term counselling or long-term therapy. I understand that many problems people face in adulthood are because of negative childhood experiences and traumas. I work psychodynamically to address childhood issues and help clients understand where their unhelpful negative thinking, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, guilt and anger may come from. With this awareness comes the knowledge that people have a choice, and can make the necessary changes to lead happier more successful lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic counselling and am a Registered Member of the BACP. I have many year's experience working with clients. I have qualifications in Parent and student Support within schools.

I work for a leading charity dealing with abuse (sexual, emotional, psychological, physical, financial) both as a counsellor and group facilitator. I have worked in schools, supporting both students and parents who were experiencing difficulties. For example, helping promote healthy relationships (both at school and at home) and raising self-esteem and confidence to increase school attendance. I also ran workshops, including raising awareness of anti- bullying.

I am experienced working with addictions, as this is a common coping strategy in abusive relationships.

I attend regular training to keep up to date with my skills and knowledge, including mental health, addictions, and suicide awareness. I also attend regular supervision which allows me to work both effectively and healthily.
