About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced and accredited Counsellor MBACP (accred). I have been working within secondary schools counselling for 3 years and before this within the community. 

I have many years experience working with young people and adults both individually and within groups.

I am passionate about families and have facilitated parenting programs, I supported many families over 10+ years who had experienced or were living with domestic abuse.

My role as your counsellor is to provide you with a safe, supportive place for you to speak openly and feel listened to. It is a great feeling to be heard and understood. I am a very relaxed, warm, caring and professional counsellor and my foundations to the sessions are to be empathetic, genuine and a non-judgemental.

I recognise that everyone is different and therefore we all learn and process individually so I will work with you to find a therapeutic way that meets your needs.

Counselling is a journey and everyone moves at their own pace, I would be happy to help you start, continue or even finish that journey with you.

Practice description

Hi I know it can be very difficult to find someone to talk to about personal, emotional, confusing and distressing parts of your life, its great that you have found the courage and strength to start the journey.

I am an Integrative counsellor - I use different techniques/tools/approaches depending on what feels right for you.

Person-centred - I follow your lead as the client and actively listen for things that need considered.

I see individuals.

I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics and have monthly supervision. 

My first session

The first session will be getting to know you - giving you a chance to chat about what is bringing you to counselling.
