In my private practice I see clients who come with different issues and problems, I feel the most important part of counselling is to work with each individual as they are, and to create a confidential and safe relationship. I do my very best to help and support those who ask for help, however if I feel I am unable to help I will endeavour to sign post other counsellors and counselling organisations that may be best placed to help you.
I have experience with bereavement, developmental Trauma, low self esteem and low self confidence, relationship problems, anxiety, depression and stress, loss of identity and spiritual identity.
I also have experience of working with individuals at varying stages of Alzheimer's disease and other Dementias. Including supporting carers affected by this.
