About me and my therapy practice
Since a very early age I had a deep passion for helping people and that passion steered me in the direction of a career in nursing, mindfulness and counselling. I have a background in mental health having worked in the NHS as a mental health nurse since 2005. I have been practising counselling by working in various local charity organisations and my own private practice.
I recognise the differences and diversity regarding religion, faith, spirituality, culture, gender, sexual orientation, race, disabilities and respect the individuality and uniqueness of every person and their individual needs.
Having worked with people from all walks of life with a wide diversity of personal issues and emotional difficulties, I find it highly rewarding to be there in their individual journey's to overcome challenges during their transition to normality, one step and one day at a time.
My initial training is as a person centred counsellor. I use a variety of skills and modalities to assist you in achieving your counselling goals depending on your inclination and needs .
There may be times we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with something from our past, present or future. Facing up to reality can be difficult or daunting. Sometimes we cannot verbalise or share our feelings and thoughts with friends and family and it can affect our own wellbeing - physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.
I welcome you by offering you a safe and confidential private space where you can feel comfortable to express some of your inner thoughts, feelings, fears and hopes in a non-judgemental environment. I will facilitate and help make sense of things that may seem confusing or unsettling for you.
