Welcome to my profile. I am a humanistic counsellor offering a safe place to talk through your personal problems and feelings. The type of Counselling offered is tailored to suit your individual needs and this will be discussed in your first meeting with me. You may find it easier to talk or you may find it easier to express how you feel working in a therapeutic way.
I worked in nursing and the mental health field on and off for thirty years.
My nursing includes hospice work. I worked as a care worker and a counsellor within the Hospice field.
In a secondary school I worked as a counsellor and more recently a student mentor. I help teenagers with many issues. These includled, self harm, family issues, adolescentl problems, low self esteem, anger and behavioural issues.
I find working with Teenagers enjoyable and rewarding. If a teenager finds it hard to talk, I have found the talking and drawing technique really affective as a starting point.
If you have not had Counselling, or are unsure about the benefits of counselling and how it works I will explain and answer questions you may have. It can feel very scary. I hope to help you feel at ease and support you through your therapy sessions. Counselling is an empowering experience and I look forward to supporting you while you work through your feelings and move forward.
I can also help you with coping strategies to help you manage your thoughts, feelings and actions that may be hard for you to manage.
A counsellor does not tell you what to do.
A counsellor is to help you get your life back on track and to help you feel in control and empowered.
