About me and my therapy practice
Do you need time to reflect, review and re-evaluate your life story in the context of the place that you find yourself in now? Adversity can raise questions around life’s meanings serving to sabotage confidence, self-esteem and relationships. Healing comes from developing a deeper connection with our core self and our understanding of the ways we hold onto our suffering.
I am an Accredited Member of the BACP and have ten years experience of counselling. I previously worked as a Registered General Nurse for more than two decades.
As a counsellor, I bring together my life experiences, professional work and interest in mental health. I am particularly fascinated by how we relate to one another and the impact adversity can have on our resilience within our relationships.
It is fundamentally important to me that my clients feel relaxed in my company in order to be heard without judgment, creating a collaborative and supportive environment. I am curious to hear about your inner world in the belief that you are guided by your own wisdom but that this may have been compromised during difficult times. I aim to help raise your awareness around this and work towards facilitating any change or acceptance you would like to make.
Outside of my private practice, I work as an Oncology Counsellor for Force, a local charity (since 2013) where I co-facilitate groups as well as work with individuals and couples.
