About me

My areas of speciality are anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement.

I provide a one to one counselling service from my home, in a relaxed private environment working with people from all backgrounds, this is by appointment only service; a place where there is calmness and safety, where the client can talk about issues and know they are not being judged.

My reason for becoming a counsellor, a few years ago I was the client, "talking" to someone helped me to understand the issues I was experiencing and to see things in a different light, this gave me the passion to help others.

I studied a Higher National Diploma in Integrative Counselling, I work from a person centred basis, but work according to client needs. Since starting my counselling career I have worked in GP surgeries and with Cruse Bereavement Care.

I believe for the counselling process to work, the key is the relationship between the client and the counsellor, it is important to build a trusting relationship, to ensure this happens I use the Rogerian core conditions of respect, empathy and prizing.

I am aware of policies and procedures regarding equal opportunitie, child protection, risk assessment and of confidentiality. I regularly attend professional development courses on issues to enhance my professional practice.
