About me

I decided to follow my dreams and become a counsellor after many years of being told time and time again that I should be one!

My previous work was also with people, and I'm told I am a great listener and people feel very comfortable with me.  I hope I can provide that comfort and easiness with you.

I Qualified as an Integrative Counsellor (which means I use several models of counselling), and I work with adults, children and young people.

I have a huge interest in psychodynamic counselling, which entails connecting current issues you may have with things which may have happened to you in childhood.  CBT is fantastic as a solution, but I believe that to get to the root of the problem is essential.

I worked for 2 and a half years as a Volunteer Counsellor in school, and have gone on to work with a children's mental health charity as an Assistant School Project Manager in 2 different schools.

I have also done training with Cruse the Bereavement Charity, and work with children and young people there.

I love working with sand trays with both adults and children...very powerful stuff!

I enjoy working with groups, and have also worked with families.

I am fully insured and all of my certificates are available to view if required.

I attend monthly supervision, as well as supervision within my workplace and with Cruse.

I am also interested in Mindfulness, and sometimes include it in sessions, along with breathing techniques- especially when working with Stress and Anxiety.
