About me and my therapy practice
I offer professional, confidential counselling - in a safe, comfortable, environment. That enables clients - whether individuals or couples tackle the issues they face, take control of their lives and feel better about themselves.
- Also offering telephone counselling at present to support people through the current COVID - 19 crisis.
- online counselling (via zoom)
I am a qualified, hugely experienced integrative counsellor with an extensive knowledge of mental health issues. Over the years, I have helped many people with a wide range of issues. What my clients have found most helpful is that I am someone who listens to their concerns, who doesn't judge them and who offers empathy and understanding for them and their situation.
I have 15 years counselling experience within the voluntary sector, along seeing clients in my private practice.
During this time I gained 6 years experience working for the mental health charity - Mind. Often working with people with severe mental ill health distress. Cobweb a young peoples organisation - counselling individuals from the age of 16 to 25. Currently I provide counselling for a charity supporting adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Whatever the setting and whoever I am working with, i maintain a core belief in the value of every individual. I believe everyone has within them the potential for self-direction and constructive growth to enable them to make the right choices and right changes in their lives.
My role is to enable you to talk about the things that are troubling you, to know and understand yourself and your behaviour, so that you can give yourself choices about how you are and what you do.
My practice is integrative - this means I do not focus purely on one approach, I use my experience and training to meet the individual needs of my clients.
