About me and my therapy practice

As a counsellor of many years experience I provide person centred therapy services for children, young people and adults. I use a combination of talking therapy, play and art therapy.

I work from my home and when I work with adults I can go to their home if they feel that it's better for them. In turn when it is appropriate I can see children and young people in their place of education. This would have to be agreed by the place of education prior to the first visit.

I tailor my approach to the needs of every client, assessing what would be most appropriate and effective, so that they can get the most positive outcomes from therapy.

I have worked as a counsellor in a number of settings including a University, schools and charities with clients ranging four years old upwards. I have worked with a lot of different issues including bereavement, loss, rape and sexual violence, trauma with children and adults. 

I feel that counselling is a very brave thing to do, but the positive changes that people experience make it worth while.

Counselling gives the client a safe, confidential place to over come and understand their own feelings. I believe that therapy can set free all the baggage that all human beings carry around with them.
