About me and my therapy practice
I have been qualified as a person-centred counsellor since 2015 and have worked as a volunteer counsellor with various organisations since 2014. I completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology and English Literature back in 2003.
I have had further counselling training in the areas of bereavement and sexual abuse. Although I am also trained as a play therapist and have worked as a counsellor with children and teenagers, I am choosing to work only with adults at this time. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and with a range of presenting issues. I am very passionate about attending to diversity issues in my work where appropriate, as I know that our various social positions can affect our experiences and viewpoints, as well as have implications for our healing processes.
I believe deeply in person-centred theory which is about listening without judgment and valuing the personal experiencing of clients in order to promote therapeutic change. In addition I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the heart of any therapeutic experience. I work as a counsellor because I love to support clients in achieving their personal therapy goals and I am honoured to be part of their journey every time.
I also currently work as a First Point of Contact Support Worker for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service in Calderdale. Some of this work includes speaking with parents and children to screen cases for ASD, anxiety and low mood. As such I have grown in knowledge in these areas.
My availability is Tuesday afternoons/ evenings and Saturdays up until 4pm. I am available for home visits at these times should this be necessary due to accessibility issues.
