About me and my therapy practice

I am a Counsellor who works in a Person-Centred way. I aim to understand your world from your viewpoint rather than my interpretation of it.

I provide you with a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you are in control of what you work on. This allows me to work with you in the best possible way to meet your needs.

I work with individuals, couples, families and businesses.

My practice is a few minutes from Wishaw town centre.

I previously worked for a charity which specialised in working with Survivors of abuse ranging from physical, sexual, domestic, mental and neglect from the past through to the present. I also worked with family members of Survivors of abuse.

This was a prison based role where I worked with adult males and females and female young offenders. I supported clients to work through various traumas and losses ranging from mild to complex. Counselling at times was their first step to dealing with their problems and traumas in a safe environment at their own pace. They wanted to make life changes for the better but were stuck and were unsure how or where to start. Counselling provided them with the space to work this out.

I would also support my clients prior to their release as this could be a worrying time with a lot of uncertainty regarding fears of reintegration or reoffending. 

Prior to this I have worked for other charities specialising in areas such as

* Mild to moderate mental health issues such as anxiety and stress.

* Moderate to severe mental health issues including psychosis and hearing voices.

* Various other charities which specialise in working with Survivors of sexual abuse and violence.
