About me

Who I can work with:

I work with adults, children and young people, face-to-face and using Skype and Facetime.  I also enjoy working with groups. The approach I take is to work with you to resolve the issues you are dealing with, enabling you to feel more positive and at ease about it/them, and to be aware of your choices.

I am a warm, compassionate, patient, empathic person with a sense of humour. I enjoy working with people enabling you to rediscover your strengths and resources through short or longer term work. Diversity means so many things to different people - I consider myself open to working with a broad range of people and issues.

Sessions are confidential between us.  I do not share anything you have said with family or friends, which means you have the chance to work things out for yourself in your time, with confidence.

Training, qualifications & experience

Hmm, I'm trying to imagine what you need to know, as a reader.

I've trained - in Humanistic counselling, at Chichester University, to degree level. This is a BACP accredited course.  Additionally, I have a diploma in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), which offers techniques helpful in dealing with phobias for example.

Professional bodies accept and accredit my training - I'm an accredited member of NCS (National Counselling Society) and a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I work to the ethical guidelines of both.

I have professional insurance.

Experience - I have worked as a counsellor in different settings including Earl Mountbatten Hospice for five years; Southampton University counselling students and staff; ‘No Limits’ in Southampton with young people, and both YMCA on the island with children and young people and Youth Trust.  I enjoy working in creative ways, both in discussion and practically.

Recent additional training - Working Alongside Trans and Gender Variant People.

The issues I’ve worked together with people on have included dealing with change and loss; relationships; life transitions; abuse; anxiety; eating disorders; depression; fear; identity; gender identity/ gender dysphoria (not a fan of the term); trauma; loneliness; power; failures and successes. I work according to what people bring and want to talk about, as well what may be being avoided.
