I am a person centred counsellor embarking on private practice having worked in the field of addiction and family relationships for several years. My own experience leads me to believe in the importance of being listened to in an open and non-judgemental way. Just to have the space and time to explore emotional issues can be invaluable as a way of resolving past or present difficulties.
I am experienced in all aspects of counselling havingworked for many years with people who have had issues with drug and alcohol misuse. Low self esteem, lack of self confidence and self believe, anxiety, depression, issues around trauma and abuse to name a few of the difficulties I feel I could help and support clients with.
I have also worked extensively with families and individuals when relationships become strained for many different reasons. Families in modern days can be very diverse thus communication with each other can be misunderstood leading to breakdown in the family structure.
As I am just beginning private practice my fees will be discretionary and concessions can be discussed for students and unwaged people. I offer a first 30 minute session free as a way of ensuring, as far as possible, that I can meet your needs.

MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
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.
