About me

I am a professionally qualified Integrative Therapist and have been practising since 2010. I am a registered member of BACP and The National Counselling Society. During the past 10 years I have worked with children and adults of all ages. I have supported clients working through a range of issues from Generalised Anxiety Disorder, depression, work related stress, bullying, bereavement and loss, trauma, low self esteem and anger.

Counselling gives me the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives equipping them with the tools and skills to develop self awareness and enhance decision making.

I am  located in the village of Culmore within easy reach of the city of Derry.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

As the mother of six children and a Secondary School teacher for thirty four years I bring the experiences and skills gained from these roles into the counselling room.

I am an adopted person who traced my birth mother and siblings in 1995. I found this whole journey both empowering and healing. The experiences of this time in my life inform my practice in the counselling room.

I have been counselling for eight years and truly love my work. I am a warm and friendly person and it is my belief that the relationship between counsellor and client is paramount. The approach I use is integrative which means I draw interventions from various theories such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Rogers Person-Centred, Psychodynamic. This enables me to keep the client and his/her needs central to the counselling process.

I have extensive experience working with children and adults of all ages. My work with children has taken me to a number of schools in the North West area.

I find working with children is fun, and educational. A lot of my work in this field is experiential and highly rewarding.

Equally I have found my work with adults just as rewarding.
