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.

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.
