About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified counsellor with over 18 years’ experience. Counselling offers you the support system that allows you to speak in whatever way you need to in order to find healing and I provide a safe space to be able to speak your truth without being interrupted, judged or dismissed.
Counselling can help everyone to improve their daily lives. It can be hard sifting through your emotions on your own, so having that person there who will support you, to understand your feelings and gain some clarity around your emotions and feelings can help you and the process.
Deciding to see a counsellor is itself an act of bravery as it can be difficult to talk to strangers about your struggles especially if you feel as though they are unimportant in the larger scheme of life.
My experience is extensive and during my counselling career I have set up and managed a voluntary youth counselling service supporting ages 11 to 25yr olds. Working with young people to find relief from problems and distress and to help promote the well being of those seeking help.
Most recently I have also been supporting the LGBTQ+ community via The Black Trans Foundation and I am on the Gendered Intelligence directory of counsellors. I completed a 2-day counsellor/therapist course: Working alongside Trans, Gender Diverse and Questioning People through the Gendered Intelligence training programme. I am continuing to develop my work in this area, and I am a dedicated ally to this community. Having strong personal ties through my friendship groups and being involved in various activities. I have seen over the years the difficulty faced by black people and trans people, particularly the black trans community, and because of this I have had the pleasure in supporting The Black Trans Foundation and those who are accessing this therapy.
My approach is Person Centred, placing you at the center of the sessions. We will look at what you can do, not your condition and supporting you to achieve your aspirations.
I can provide both short-term and longer-term work.
All sessions are 50 minutes which will generally be on the same day and time each week.
I can accommodate clients who are shift-workers and changes to sessions due to changes to their rota, these will be agreed in advance.
Appointments are available in-person, telephone or via zoom
