About me and my therapy practice

The truth of the BACP motto 'counselling changes lives' is something of which I have personal experience and also something I continually witness in the lives of my clients. 

Do you want to change something about your life? Or learn more about yourself? Do you have a story that needs telling in a safe and confidential environment?

Establishing a secure and compassionate therapeutic relationship is a foundational key to my collaborative approach and whether it is long or short term therapy you require, I am trained to offer a range of skilful interventions to help meet your needs. Together we will work through your issues in a way that is specifically tailored to respect your uniqueness.

A former Education professional, I am skilled at working empathically with both adults and adolescents and am also trained to work with couples.

I help tackle...

the limiting effects of historical or current trauma including PTSD, all types of abuse, suicide, traumatic bereavement, relationship breakdown, loss of job or health, low self-confidence, mental health recovery, identity crises, relationship difficulties, domestic crises, parenting matters and second-generation migration issues.

Practicalities…

If you would like to explore the possibility of arranging a formal appointment with me, I offer a free 20 minute exploratory telephone call for any queries you may have.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Teacher, Trainer and Registered Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor with many years’ experience of working with young people with psychological, physical, mental and emotional disorders both as a Medical Pupil Referral Unit Teacher and in a Therapeutic Counselling capacity.

As a Licensed Thrive Practitioner for Childhood Years I am trained in brain development, neuroscience and creative interventions. I am also a qualified Philosophy for Schools Group Facilitator. I have facilitated Teaching Staff PSHE Planning Meetings and worked with groups of young people in schools running lunchtime clubs to support mental wellbeing.

My specialisms are grief, loss, trauma, attachment issues, mental disorders, Autistic Spectrum Disorders (high-functioning) and the emotional issues that commonly afflict adolescents. I am happy to support schools and other organisations as a Trainer in whichever way they deem appropriate to support the mental wellbeing of Staff and young people in accordance with National priorities for organisations.
