About me and my therapy practice
Please note that during the Covid-19 pandemic, I am offering telephone and online counselling sessions only. These are priced at my concessionary rate of £20.00.
Having been both client and counsellor, I am passionate about making counselling and psychotherapy accessible to everyone. I believe that everyone has the right to be heard and understood.
Several years ago, following some personal difficulties, I changed career in order to work with others more relationally. I have a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology and describe myself as a humanistic counsellor that uses a person-centred approach. This means that I believe, given the right conditions, we are all able to achieve growth within our lives and that you are the expert of your life.
I work at the Douglas Macmillan Hospice as a volunteer bereavement counsellor and have experience of working with a wide range of adults and the challenges that they face. My background is working to safeguard vulnerable children and their families. I find that the impact of one challenge can be intertwined with another and so, I avoid working with labels and instead focus on experiences and feelings as they present themselves.
I believe that the way we 'click' is integral to the success of our work and so I strive to nurture the counselllor/client relationship using warmth and empathy. If you'd like to work with me or simply find out more, please contact me using the information below.
Please note that during the Covid-19 Pandemic, I am offering telephone and online sessions only.
