About me

Hello thanks for looking at my profile, I know it can be scary when you first start looking for help so here's a bit about me and what I can offer you. I am a Psychodynamic counsellor with experience of working with people who have a wide range of problems. I have worked in different counselling agencies with all types of people in different circumstances. Now I have decided to concentrate on working in my private practice which I do from a dedicated room at my home. The surrounding area is peaceful and quiet so I am able to offer a private and confidential space where you can think about and explore your issue's. I have a Certificate and a Higher Education Diploma in Contemporary Pyschodynamic Counselling, I did my training at the University of Leicester.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and I adhere to their professional code of ethics of good practice.

Further information

We all need emotional support from time to time and we can't always turn to family and friends. We will sit in a comfortable room where you will talk and I will listen and I will reflect back what I have heard so we can try to make sense of your issues. It can be helpful to talk to someone in confidence who is impartial and non-judgemental. These conversations can help us to think about difficult feelings or situations and we may see more clearly how to resolve them. Some of the issues people come to counselling to discuss include feelings of loss, low mood or worry, others may be having difficulty handling bereavement, separation and relationships at home and work. I work in a quiet countryside location near Melton Mowbray, our first session will be about getting to know each other I will let you know about confidentiality and the BACP code of ethics that I work within. I know this sounds a little formal to start with but our following weekly sessions will be about building a relationship of trust which can take some time but during that process you will be listened to with empathy, caring & understanding.
