- I am currently offering 1:1 counselling and 1:1 Mindfulness sessions in my cabin at my Home Practice.

Welcome to my profile on Counselling Directory. I am able to provide a safe private space in which you may address those aspects of your life which are causing anxiety, difficulty, feelings of sadness or distress. The aim of my work is to improve your quality of life, to help you take control of your own wellness, thereby reducing the need for medication.
Following a career in teaching and training, I began my counsellor training in 2006. I have been working in a GP surgery setting since 2014, as well as working in my own practice. I am now a fully qualified counselling Supervisor. I am also a Level 4 CPCAB Tutor at Westmeria Counselling College where I teach adults who are training to become counsellors.
I also run regular Mindfulness Courses. I am a member of The British School of Meditation and have trained with Mary Neilson, who works as a trainer and consultant in schools and businesses. Part of my 6 week course is to encourage Emotional Resilience, thereby reducing the intensity and duration of emotional responses in life, such as anger, fear, self-sabotage and other uncomfortable emotional reactions.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MABCP). Working in an integrative way means that I can approach my work with you whilst drawing on a number of therapeutic approaches, so that you can receive counselling which is tailored to your needs.
I work with a range of emotional difficulties and I am able to offer counselling to individuals of all ages. I have extensive experience dealing with:-
Abuse Affairs and Betrayals
Alcoholism Anxiety and Panic Attacks
Bereavement and Loss Depression
Developing Emotional Resilience Diversity Issues
Feeling Sad Getting Past your Break Up
General Anxiety Disorder Illness (Acute and Chronic)
Inner Child Work Menopause
Self-Harm Self-Care and Self-Compassion
Social Anxiety Student Stress
Trauma and Abuse Work Related Stress
I am in clinical supervision to BACP requirements to sustain and monitor my working practice and ethics in my counselling practice.
I am happy to speak with you over the phone so that you can decide if you would like to meet me for an initial session. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your next steps.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
