About me and my therapy practice
Hi and welcome,
Counselling gives you a space for many different reasons, we all have our own unique story and experiences which at times we can find difficult or stuck for vast and varying reasons. My way of working is to understand your own individual experiences, past and present within a non-judgemental space to be able to explore anything that you are finding difficult within a safe, ethical, confidential and supportive space.
I am a humanistic/integrative counsellor and a member of the BACP. I can help you find ways to enable you to understand yourself, your situation and support you towards making positive changes and choices in your life. I have a specialism in mind/body connections and trauma, autoimmune conditions, disability, chronic pain and long-term health conditions. I work to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) code of ethics and standards and hold professional indemnity insurance.
Through counselling and psychotherapy, I can help you to:
• improve your self-care and understanding
• improve and help with relationships
• improve unhelpful patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours
• learn more about your thoughts and feelings and their impact
• improve your self-worth
• help with anxiety and depression
• help with addiction and the patterns of addiction
• help and improve living with chronic pain, living with ill health and disability
• support and help carers, family of those living with chronic pain and ill health
For organisations I can create workshops to empower team dynamics, support better mental health, and team building in consultation with the businesses objectives.
I am a moderator for an online support group of over 8,000 members, for over 10 years, for those living with a spinal condition, chronic pain and long-term ill health conditions. My passion is to support and empower those who live with chronic pain and various conditions that impact ever aspect of their lives, find ways to manage the bad days and live the good days.
Prior to counselling I worked in children and family services for 15 years, in various capacities supporting families and working with other agencies and charities within the community.
I have a limited number of concessional spaces please contact to discuss.
A minimum of 24Hrs notice must be given for cancellation or the missed appointment will be charged for.
