About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes we can all feel overwhelmed. If you are struggling in life and want to think and feel differently about your situation, then counselling may help by working through your issues. Experiences can often cause strong feelings of anger, fear or pain and by talking and understanding your individual situation you can begin to lessen the pain. Counselling may help you to manage the anxiety, anger and any other emotions you may be experiencing, by working together we can look at areas that you would like to work on, to enable you to find ways of coping.

I will provide you with support and understanding to help you through your journey. I offer clients a safe place to fully explore thoughts, feelings, issues, fears, difficulties, choices and opportunities by allowing you to talk confidentially and be heard and listened to without being judged, enabling you to understand your feelings which may be causing you distress and by giving you greater self-awareness and sense of empowerment, leading you to make more meaningful changes in your life.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a registered member of BACP. I hold a current DBS and attend CPD training courses for my professional development.

I currently work with students and staff. I have over 15 years experience of working in a school environment. I also have vast experience of working with adults supporting them with emotions of rape, domestic violence trauma and complex issues.

My private practice is located in Oadby, with client parking and is easily accessible by public transport.

In our first session we will have an informal chat to discuss what you would like from counselling. To see if I am the right counsellor for you as it is important to find a therapist that you can trust and feel comfortable with. Call or email me to make an appointment.
