About me and my therapy practice

Taking the initial steps to making contact and giving yourself permission to access support can be one of the most hardest and difficult decisions. I imagine you may be here because life is feeling emotionally uncomfortable at the moment.

As a professional and experienced therapeutic counsellor my aim is to offer you a safe and confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings given the difficulties you may be facing. I can help you to take more control of your life and help to make your own choices in order to bring about the necessary changes you desire and move forward to where you want to be. I work from a person - centred theoretical basis offering you a genuinely non-judgemental, empathic and warm relationship. I will walk by your side throughout your journey whilst you explore and be heard.

I have experience of working with a wide range of clients within my private practice as well as in my educational setting as Secondary School Counsellor. I also have experience of working within various clinical environments.

In addition to my counselling practice I have additional knowledge and experience of working with primary and secondary aged children and young people with social, emotional and mental health issues within an enhanced mainstream school working collaboratively with multi-agencies. I also have extensive experience of family work and the facilitation of family group sessions. 

Over the last 20 years I worked with adults from all walks of life who have presented with various issues such as Mental Health and well being issues, substance misuse and alcohol difficulties
