About me

I firmly believe that we ourselves have the means to solve any problem we may encounter. Counselling helps this by providing an understanding, confidential and supportive environment to explore whatever is troubling us.

This exploration allows us to identify and understand the source of our difficulties, get a clearer view of how and why this currently affects us, and enables us to start thinking about what we can do to reduce the impact these difficulties are having on our life. This will result in us taking control of the situation and feeling much more positive about our lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a counsellor in 2010 after many years teaching young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities. Since qualifying I have worked for a successful local counselling charity, seeing clients from a variety of backgrounds who have presented with a wide range of issues. As part of this work, I have provided counselling at a busy local G.P. surgery.

I am also a qualified counselling supervisor, and I am currently undertaking training to enable me to run therapeutic groups.

My training is in the Person-Centred approach to counselling. This means we will talk about what you want to discuss, and work at your pace. My starting point is that you are the expert on your life. I see my job as assisting and encouraging you to come to a better understanding of yourself and your circumstances. We will do this by exploring whatever difficulties you are experiencing in a safe, accepting, and supportive environment. We may agree to work towards this in a limited number of counselling sessions, or you may prefer to work in an open-ended manner until you feel you have reached your goal.

I am a registered member of the B.A.C.P. and work within their ethical guidelines. As part of my commitment to continuing self-development, I regularly attend training events to improve and extend my skills, knowledge and understanding.

I have: a Diploma in Counselling from Middlesex University, a B.A.C.P. accredited course.

A Certificate of Counselling Supervision Practice from Macclesfield Counselling and Training Centre.

I currently work for Confide Counselling Service, the only B.A.C.P. accredited counselling charity in Shropshire
