I am passionate about helping people to become everything they want to be and that I know that they can become. I believe that everyone we meet in life is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something.
In the process of counselling we will engage in a form of psychological or talking therapy that will offer you the chance to change how you feel and to live better.
I am an integrative counsellor, and work using a combination of: Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have further training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies , Counselling Children and Adolescents
I offer COUNSELLING SUPERVISION to Qualified and Trainee Counsellors that use Person Centred, CBT ,Psychodynamic approaches or an Integrative model.
My background is Nursing and I have over 30 years experience of working as a Nurse in various settings such as Hospitals and Care Homes. I believe this experince enhances the quality of my work.
I offer a safe, professional and confidential service at an affordable price for adults of all ages ,children and adolescents.
