About me and my therapy practice
Well my background and route into Counselling is varied to say the least!
Having spent many years working in The Hospitality industry, I moved into teaching in Further Education 16 years ago working with teens and young adults.
Since qualifying 6 years ago as an integrative counsellor, I have worked for a number of children and young peoples charities in a variety of Secondary and Primary schools across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
My partner and I are experienced foster carers and I am also a therapist for a national charity, working with children in both foster and adoptive care and I have a keen interest in issues around attachment, trauma and abuse.
In addition to these roles I teach Counselling skills to adults, run bespoke training courses for a number of organisations and also see clients in my private practise.
I find my work with children and young people very rewarding and feel very privileged to have the opportunity to support and counsel a client group who entrust their lives, feelings and emotions during our time together. A huge honour.
I work with children, teens, adults, couples and families with a wide variety of issues. I am very flexible re days and times to suit clients, can be flexible re fees and do have access to funding to support clients in certain circumstances. I can see clients in their own homes or schools and also have access to a room nearby if preferred.
I also have experience of using skills and techniques from play therapy, theraplay and DDP to support family relationships, attachment and trauma.
Happy to chat further before we meet to discuss how I might be able to support you.
