About me and my therapy practice
Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
Having the support of a family member or friend can be invaluable but sometimes we may limit what we say to them for fear of being judged or worrying about over-burdening them. Having someone impartial to talk to without these barriers can therefore be extremely helpful.
My take on counselling is pretty straightforward. It’s about providing a safe space for you to talk about anything you feel is troubling you or holding you back from moving forward. A space in which you can explore thoughts and feelings, try and make sense of what’s going on and find some tools and answers to make some positive steps.
Counselling is a collaborative process and fostering a trusting relationship between counsellor and therapist is key. I don’t have a magic wand and I’m not an expert on your life but I can listen without judgement, perhaps offer a different perspective or occasionally a gentle challenge.
I am a fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor with over 20 years experience of working with a wide and diverse range of clients in a variety of settings including higher education, private and voluntary sectors.
Before qualifying as a counsellor I spent 10 years working in industry in a variety of roles. I have a degree in History & English and an MA in English and Creative Writing.
I have a Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I was trained initially in the person-centred approach and have received additional training in CBT and Transactional Analysis which I sometimes incorporate as part of my work with clients.
I offer face to face and remote video counselling and my practice is based in the centre of Leicester. I am happy to work both long or short-term with clients.
Sorry, I don’t offer telephone counselling.
