About me and my therapy practice
A BACP accredited counsellor working in central Hereford, I have considerable experience of supporting adults and young people through mental health challenges, bereavement, lifestyle changes and relationship or behaviour issues; and I am told that my manner is warm and empathic. My counselling room is comfortable, private, and has excellent accessibility for all. I can offer evening or weekend appointments if necessary.
I work from a person-centred core approach, meaning that I address each client as an individual and seek to reach a joint understanding of what you are bringing to counselling. We will seek to share the nature of your distress; how events of the past impact upon the present-day; and how ongoing challenges are affecting you. We can also look at how you are coping now, and how short-term strategies can be unhelpful in the long-term. I will then think about what skills I can offer to bring about real change in terms of greater understanding or more helpful beliefs or ways of behaving.
I have up to date qualifications in working with anxiety and depression in young people and adults; and have worked in high schools for several years, gaining an understanding of the effect of family and relationship breakdown, bullying and intimidation, suicide and intrusive thoughts. I also have an interest in the challenges posed by living, working and bringing up a family in rural areas.
