Welcome to my profile. Reaching out for support is a courageous first step towards taking charge of your life which shows your awareness that something needs to change and deserves to be celebrated. Seeking professional support can be daunting as well as exciting as you realize that things can and will change in the future for the better.
Given the recent outbreak of Covid 19 I am more than happy to provide Skype sessions.
Counselling and therapy is a journey with many twists and turns as you begin unravelling and understanding your patterns, habits, limiting beliefs and what it is you can really achieve in life.
I provide a safe and confidential space in which to explore these issues and together make sense of difficulty whilst removing the internal blocks that may have been preventing you from fully connecting with your life. With renewed direction and purpose counselling can be a rewarding journey offering a unique opportunity for you to reach your full potential.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working in the counselling field since 1999. Following the completion of my training in 2002 I worked in residential treatment for addiction where my specialism in group work started. After gaining an additional qualification in this area I concentrated mainly on this and facilitated a number of therapeutic and psycho-educational groups including a weekly men’s group which I facilitated for over five years. Towards the end of this period I re-focused on my individual work and achieved BACP accreditation in 2017 after which I started in private practice.
More recently I have qualified in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction which offers clients an excellent opportunity to address issues at the level of body, mind and spirit.
My approach is client led and relational in nature. I work on an individual basis with those in need of assistance in addressing a range of presenting issues. With the willingness and ability to engage in discussion I work to facilitate restoration, growth and development over an agreed period of time. I am happy to work over a brief term period as well as offering longer term work and constantly review the progress and needs of the client on a regular basis.
