About me

How are you?

Seriously, How are you really doing?

In counselling sessions It’s OK not to be OK, and its OK to say so.

I would like to offer you a safe, confidential, professional space that is yours and yours alone. You can turn off the filter, and say it how it really is. So often we edit our replies according to who is listening, where and when. Even with a loved one we can be aware of and worried about the effect our words and thoughts could have on them.

I offer one-to-one Person-Centred Counselling sessions for people of all ages (so far ranging from 4 to 84). My private counselling room in Bignall End is easily accessible from the A500 or A34.

Training, qualifications & experience

Post Graduate Diploma Counselling Psychology from Keele University October 2014

Neroli Counselling, is an ethical private counselling practice in Bignall End (North Staffordshire). I work with people from all walks of life and I work with all ages: my youngest client is 4 years old and my oldest is 84 years old. An area that is very close to my heart is supporting Staff, Children & Young People as they navigate their way through education.

Currently I also work as a (Sessional) Children and Young Persons Counsellor for Embrace Child Victims Of Crime. I aim to assist Embrace CVOC in their vision: to 'be there' for all those children and teenagers who, through no fault of their own, are victims of crime.

I have worked as a Volunteer Counsellor in South Manchester with Place2Be and in Stoke-on-Trent with The Dove Service and The Samaritans. I was also employed part-time on a joint project facilitated by The Dove Service for Staffordshire County Council and CAMHS to provide one-to-one therapy sessions for children and young people aged 4 to 18 in schools and Children's Centres.

Working with Place2Be I provided high quality one-to-one therapeutic play sessions for children in a primary school. I have experience of working with many presenting issues such as: attachment problems, parental domestic violence, parental neglect, parental separation, parental drug, alcohol and substance misuse.

Working within The Dove Service I provided one-to-one therapy sessions for clients with a variety of presenting issues including loss of a loved one, or many loved ones, loss of a child or children, critical or terminal illness of self and/or a loved one, life altering illness, loss through separation and/or divorce, suicide, domestic violence and abuse. I have found that it is not unusual for clients to attend sessions due to grief or loss but then discover that they would like to work on an issue in their daily lives that we uncover together.
