About me

With as many problems as we are all faced with in our work and life, it seems as if there is never enough time to solve each one without dealing with some adversity along the way.  Problems keep mounting so fast that we find ourselves taking short-cuts to temporarily alleviate the tension points – so we can move onto the next problem. In this process, we fail to solve the core of each problem; and continuously get caught up in the trap of a never-ending cycle that makes it difficult to find any real solutions.

The goal is to recognize that each problem has its own reoccurrence that may require different strategies while it’s possible to minimize or find courage to tackle them head-on. It’s not always possible to achieve this by yourself, this is the reason why I do what I do; allowing for open dialogue where you can feel safe in sharing why you believe the problem happened without fear of being judged or criticised.

I will use my skills in helping you make sense of existing problems you associate with feelings, thoughts and memories and how it relates to yourself and others, identifying the causes of your distress. Implement strategies by looking at options to see what you want to do; providing that, with my assistance, you are open to change, look thoughtfully and honestly at the problem in order to find a better way of coping. Willing to accept the possibility that change can be difficult and challenging but also rewarding if you are motivated in achieving your goal by having better coping strategy in place for dealing with life’s challenges.

As a qualified Psychodynamic counsellor and registered member of BACP, I have several years of experience working with a wide range of presenting problems at Rotherham and Barnsley Mind and with Barnsley Bereavement Service, which allows me to offer services to any presenting problems, especially in the areas of anxiety, depression, childhood abuse trauma; bereavement, gambling problems, domestic abuse and couples counselling, I offer long or short term counselling that’s affordable. My counselling is more of a directive approach in guiding clients to greater self awareness and empowering them to make changes and self improvements.
