About me

I offer a safe space to talk, a safe space to be heard.

My model of counselling is the elements of change model; it is based on the person-centred therapy of Carl Rogers, and the Psychodynamic Theory of Sigmund Freud, with elements of ACT and NLP.

I endeavour to work in a way that respects you as a unique individual, I believe you have it within yourself to solve your problems.

I will support and encourage, no matter which direction you decide to go in, until you decide the time is right to move towards the change you are seeking. I feel this self- empowerment will give you the tools necessary to manage all aspects of your life in the present and the future.

I will create an environment where you will feel safe to talk about the topics that are impacting on your life.

I work with the following issues:

  • stress
  • anxiety
  • relationship issues
  • addiction/abstinence
  • self confidence
  • self worth
  • anger

I work to the BACP ethical framework as this outlines acceptable and unacceptable behaviour, so as such protects my clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I have experience of working within mental health services, including working with people with a number of mental health problems such as paranoid schizophrenia, bipolar and personality disorders.

I have also worked in a number of addiction services, including residential rehabs and community services.  I have facilitated groups on a number of subjects including anger management, stress reduction, triggers and cravings, relapse prevention and meditation.

I work using person centred therapy and psychodynamic therapy, however I may incorporate other elements if I feel they would be of benefit to the client.  I respect the clients right to be self-governing and set the agenda for their counselling.
