About me

Being listened to and being heard, is powerful. Having space to open up and talk, a space that is safe and free of judgement, helps. This is what I do, I can help.

My interests lay in the relational qualities of therapy. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the very essence of therapy and I aim to foster a trusting environment that allows you to be yourself completely, without judgement.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Blackburn. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I work mostly within the Person-Centred approach and I have trained in other modalities allowing for a more integrative way of working if that is what clients require.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BA Honours Degree in Counselling and my training over a 4-year period has been in;

  • Person Centred Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Brief Therapy

My experience as a counsellor so far has been in trauma, abuse, bereavement, terminal illness, cultural/religious identity, sexuality, carers, anxiety and depression. I work with individuals only and have been practising since September 2016.
