About me

I’ve been working as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist since 2009 and have built up vast experience working with diverse clientele. Using a range of therapeutic models, I am passionate about journeying with people through difficult times to help them overcome adversities and tap into their inner resources to release their potential. 

I am warm, compassionate and uphold a non-judgemental attitude in all my work.

I offer one-to-one counselling for adults and young people, as well as supervision for counsellors, students and those who work within a caring profession.

I can be flexible to meet the needs of clients, and offer face-to-face counselling or zoom sessions. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I lead a community counselling organisation and have knowledge of diverse mental health issues and services. I have a vast experience of community counselling in NI and am therefore competent to offer supervision for counsellors working within community settings, schools or those working within a management or leadership role. 

Clinically, I work pluralistically which means that I’m aware that there is not one type of therapy to suit all clients, therefore I aim to tailor a bespoke treatment plan for each individual client. 

I offer CBT, Person Centred counselling, psychodynamic therapy and therapies specific to children and young people.

my qualifications include;

  • Advanced Dip in Person Centred counselling
  •  Level 5 CBT
  • Level 5 Counselling Children and Young People
  • Level 7 Supervision of Counselling professions 
  • MA in pluralistic psychotherapy (award pending)

I have also completed numerous CPD training over many years including; working creatively; assessing and working with clients at risk of suicide; sensorimotor psychotherapeutic techniques and many more. 

I have particular interest in working with people in leadership from a Christian perspective. 

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

AccessNI check

AccessNI carries out criminal records checks for individuals working in certain roles in Northern Ireland. Find out more at justice-ni.gov.uk , or contact this professional directly.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I see clients from Links Counselling Centre situated in Lurgan. A lift is available for those who are unable to use stairs and the rooms are wheelchair friendly. A large car park is available just outside the building at 40p p/h
