About me

I am a professionally qualified Integrative Therapist and have been practising since 2010. I am a registered member of BACP. During the past 8 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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. 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. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
