About me

Generally speaking, my clients have identified something that is problematic in their lives and are seeking a skilled professional they can trust and who can help them to resolve it.

I am a humanistic and integrative counsellor which means I see the client and their story to be paramount but am trained in various techniques that may be helpful to the work.

I came into the helping professions following a severe trauma I went through earlier in my life. I received wonderful help from various people and was able to turn my life around and today, I feel immensely proud and privileged be the helper.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BSc (Hons) Communications & Society. University of Leicester.

  • FdSc: Counselling. University of Gloucestershire.

Further information

In our society, many of us are aware of the benefits of keeping our bodies fit and healthy. We might run, swim or cycle, or join a class at the gym but do we give the same consideration to our minds? Self-awareness is the key to understanding ourselves better and reclaiming a sense of direction and purpose so we can take charge of our lives. Spending time talking through problems with a person we can trust can help us to realise our full potential.

For all of us, life can be tough at times and having a neutral, non-judgemental ear, removed from the attachments of our family and friends can be a liberating experience. As an integrative counsellor I am interested in helping you to get the most from yourself and can draw on a range of skills that may be helpful. I work both short-term, on specific issues, and longer term on major life issues, including working with those affected by Dementia and Autistic Spectrum Disorder, for example.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

My practice is at Enso Healing Rooms which are at the rear of Enso Martial Arts. I can meet new clients at the shop entrance and then show them how they can access the therapy rooms thereafter.

Availability

I am not currently seeking new clients but hope to have spaces at the end of September.
