About me and my therapy practice
I am an Accredited Person Centered Counsellor and I work with Adults, Young People (YP) and Children.
I have worked and volunteered in different organisations with clients that have suffered from addictions, sexual violence, abuse, Domestic Abuse, Loss, Sexuality, PTSD, Post Natal Depression, anxiety, depression, self-harm, disordered eating, OCD and many more. I currently work for an online mental health organisation.
I have had additional training in Trauma and Pre-Trial Therapy. I have worked with Children and YP in Primary and Secondary Schools, and YP in residential care homes.
My approach means I will not be giving you advice or offering solutions to problems but helping you to explore difficult feelings that may be impacting on your emotional wellbeing, family, relationships, work or studies. Self-care is an important part of healing and I have many sources of information and ideas that I can share with you or your Child or YP.
Young People and children
I have found that YP and children communicate in the counselling room differently to Adults and may find traditional 1-1 sessions uncomfortable. I have various creative materials and therapeutic toys which they can use to express themselves
Animal Assisted Therapy
I have a Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel dog and a Guinea pig who can be part of our sessions.
Walk and Talk Therapy
For those that would like to take counselling outdoors, walk and talk counselling is an option and this can be with or without my Therapy Dog.
I also offer telephone and online counselling.
I work from a separate room at the back of my home in Ingol, Preston. With a view of the garden in a quiet and private space the therapeutic hour is your time to reflect on your difficulties and find different ways to find yourself.
My first session
We can arrange a telephone/FaceTime session to talk about therapy and what would be best for you.
