About me and my therapy practice
I have always loved working with people. Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked in a manufacturing plant in a HR role for 13 years. I decided to start a new chapter in working with people, but a different approach. I swopped full time employment to being a full-time student.
During my counselling training, I volunteered at the national mental health charity Mind. I worked with people affected by mental illness, whilst most presenting issues were mainly stress and depression, some client work included other mental illness.
In addition, I also volunteered as a counsellor at a local hospice where I worked with clients who had lost their loved ones to cancer. This introduced me to working with loss.
I was fortunate to provide a counselling service to a local community interest company those objective was to support anyone affected by cancer. During my counselling work I have worked with a range of diverse clients who's worlds have been torn apart by such a diagnosis causing devastation to their health, their relationships, their self esteem and their work. Whilst I still work with loss, my scope of work has changed to work with most life issues people struggle with.
How I like to work is to provide a safe space to talk, I allow each client to be themselves and respect each client for who they are. I listen to each person and explore with them what they are experiencing. Through exploration, each client will understand themselves more. My aim is to empower each client to so they can make choices that are right for them.
