About me

Thank you for viewing my profile today.
I am an experienced Humanistic Counsellor with a small independent  practice on the borders of Leicestershire Warwickshire and Staffordshire. I am in easy reach of Atherstone, Nuneaton, Hinckley, Ashby de la Zouch, and Tamworth. I have also worked voluntarily for a local counselling charity. I am experienced working with people who have physical impairment and my service is wheel chair accessible.

It can be sometimes helpful to have a professional, confidential relationship with someone who is not directly involved in our lives.

By offering my commitment in a safe and quiet place my clients and I can explore ways of alleviating anxieties and distress.

I do not have a waiting list.

As a guide, I work with issues regarding the family, including anxiety and depression,adoption, work related problems, abortion, miscarriage, pregnancy and childbirth, bullying,  loss and grief,  relationship issues including divorce and separation, emotional sexual and physical abuse and trauma.

Some people may look to counselling for other reasons, such as a sense of loneliness or lack of motivation/fulfilment. I am able to offer meditation mindfulness and relaxation techniques to enhance my therapeutic sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

First and foremost I am a Humanistic Counsellor. I have also studied CBT, Gestalt therapy, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. I am a registered member of the BACP. I hold an enhanced CRB disclosure, and a Certificate Of Education (Nottingham).  I have been practicing mindfulness and meditation as a supplement to and to enhance therapy.

I am very experienced in working with young adults, and particularly people who have experience of the care system. I have also worked with a significant number of clients with disabilities, for example cerebral palsey, ASD, and clients with hearing and sight loss.

I have experienced counselling myself. This has helped me to understand the counselling process and so I can try to understand and help with your concerns if you feel apprehensive about therapy.  hold professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

I  am also able to offer therapy at a reduced rate for counselling students in training.
