About me

Non-judgemental, supportive counselling could provide a way out of what might feel like a maze, and offer the prospect of real change in your life.  I aim to provide a supportive environment where distress or confusion can be safely expressed and gently explored. You may be struggling with old hurts or recent distress; I have fourteen years' experience with clients who seek relief from, and insight into, their concerns.

Beginning counselling or therapy can seem daunting; contact me if you'd like a little more information, or to book an assessment session where your needs can be discussed and we can explore a way forward.

I offer one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy with adult clients in private, comfortable rooms in LE2 (1st floor) and in LE1 (ground floor) near the city centre and where I am an associate with Laura Baines-Ball Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am listed on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.  I am, therefore, committed to adherance to the Framework for Ethical Practice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a counsellor at the University of Leicester, a centre of excellence in this field and have the following awards:

*  Certificate in Counselling Studies
*  Higher Education Diploma in Contemporary Psychodynamic Counselling
BA (Hons) Counselling

In addition to my psychodynamic training, I've studied Transactional Analysis (TA) and Mindfulness.  Psychodynamic work helps us to look at our past and how that's impacting on us now; TA looks at how we relate to others and where that might be going wrong and Mindfulness is the increasingly well-known practice which can help with relaxation and focus.

I use the approaches which are most suited to each client, tailoring therapy to the individual.

In addition, I have studied specialist areas such as depression, loss and bereavement, surviving sexual abuse for both men and women, self-harm and the impact of disability.

Working both in private practice and formerly at the Leicester Counselling Centre, I have experience of a wide range of client issues, including depression and it's causes, childlessness, stillbirth, bereavement, loss in its' many forms, abuse, redundancy and work problems, and the complexities of families and relationships.  I also have experience of working with people with autism and have recently completed studies regarding Autistic Spectrum Disorders and approaches to support, with the Open University.
