About me

I am aware of the complexities individuals can face and how it can impact on our emotions, social interactions, personal and professional relationships.

With this in mind I aim to provide a client focused service that is warm, empathetic, non-judgemental and genuine to each individual’s circumstances.  In a safe, confidential and respectful environment.

I have worked with adults and children providing workshops, Motivational Speaking and Therapeutic intervention to Children and Young people with learning and support needs around behaviour/anger management, low mood, self esteem, Anxiety, Generalised anxiety disorder, Phobias, self-harm ideation and a range of support needs in schools.  I am also a fully licensed practitioner of The outcomes Star tool.

Some organisations I have collaborated with are Home Start, Murray Hall, The NHS, Common Unity - TWR and many other community organisations.

My community engagement has led to collaboration with the NHS programmed as a motivational speaker in conjunction with the Mental Health Crisis Care Concordat.

I am currently also providing workshops in the West Midlands to schools and academies around Stop & Search for the West Midlands Police & Crime Commissioners office as well as being a member of the affiliated scrutiny panel.

I work primarily to empower individuals so that they are at the helm of the care and support services that they use.  Supporting people to deal with issues of feeling sad, or alone as well as family and relationship issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor with a BACP Accredited Degree and work to the BACP ethical framework.  I underpin my counselling knowledge with qualifications in Anger Management, Criminal Psychology and a BSC in Adult Mental Health Nursing.

I trained Integratively but apply focus on CBT, Motivational Interviewing techniques and Humanistic Approaches. Support needs such as Anxiety, relationships, Depression, Bereavement, Addiction are some areas I can support with as well as having a broad knowledge and experience within Mental Health and providing supportive services.

I am also currently a Childline Telephone Volunteer Counsellor.

I am a member of the BACP Accredited register and also belong to the Accredited register for The Foundation for Infant Loss.  As well as being a Licensed holder for The Outcomes© Star by Triangle support tool.

Further information

My moto is we believe that everyone deserves a piece of the pie.

Prevention, Intervention and Education (PIE) is the key to a positive well-being.

We aim to steer the preventative flagship rather than just dealing with the aftermath of trauma and distress by providing affordable therapeutic services.  Working towards a Better Well-Being.

I will always consider 'individual circumstances' and apply discretion to fees when appropriate to enable a more autonomous based well-being and support.

To 'Get started' send an email or give me a call and we can discuss an assessment session.  This is just so that we can check that you are happy to start the process of Counselling with me.

Next we will arange an initial assessment.

Initial assessment on the phone Free (Typically lasts 30-40 minutes)

Initial Assessment face to face £20 (Payment required at booking)

Then if you are happy to continue we will book in the next session, we will arrange to see each other weekly/fortnightly/monthly or whatever you circumstances dictate for you at that time.
