About me

Many people have discovered that it is helpful to work with a mental health professional to sort out personal or social issues causing them stress. During emotionally difficult times it can be good to talk things through with a professional person outside the family to seek a solution.

I supply an environment where you can feel safe to explore your anxieties and behavioursat a pace which is right for you. Counselling is beneficial for dealing with life's daily issues which can often relate to a traumatic experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

I commenced training as a counsellor on a part time basis in 2010 and qualified in 2015. I have experience with Cruse Bereavement, and for the last five years I have worked for the charity First Step in Leicester. I have supported individuals with a wide range of difficulties including trauma, sexual abuse,relationship issues, addictions and bereavement.

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.
