About me

I am an experienced counsellor with a background in Mental Health and Addiction. Whilst working for Mind as a counsellor I gained knowledge and an understanding of the wide spectrum of mental health and its impact. At CGL I worked therapeutically with adults in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.

Every person is unique and due to my training and background I am able to offer different types of therapy. I am a Person Centred counsellor at core but I have had training in CBT and short term focused therapy. I offer a warm, friendly and non-judgemental environment in which to work with both adults and children.

Whatever brings clients to therapy, I aim to facilitate their own self awareness through the development of a trusting and supportive counselling relationship, and to assist them in becoming more self empowered and feeling more in control of their own lives. My main interest is in uncovering unconscious core beliefs which cause us unnecessary suffering and limit our growth, and working towards integrating new ways of being into our lives. With awareness, we can begin to free ourselves from our past conditioning and become more present in our everyday lives and connect at a deeper and more fulfilling way with ourselves, each other and the world around us.

In addition to this I have worked for several years in a variety of educational settings as a Behaviour Improvement Coordinator. The work I do with children and young people focuses on ways to improve and manage their own behaviour. I have attended many training courses aimed at working therapeutically with children on the ASD.
