About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for viewing my profile. Choosing the right counsellor is really important but can also be a daunting process. A little about me to help with your choice. 

Qualifications
I’m a qualified counsellor who is a Registered Member (MBACP) with the BACP. I qualified in Person Centred counselling back in 2006 & as an Integrative counsellor more recently in 2020. 

Experience
I have experience of counselling young people of college age & above, people with addiction issues, individuals with mental health issues & people who are exploring their gender identity & possible transition. I currently volunteer for a charity who supports transgender people, their families and close friends. I also work for a supported employment service who supports individuals with various barriers to find & retain employment. 

Approach
In counselling I aim to provide a safe space for you to explore your feelings without the fear of judgment or opinion. I will be by your side as you explore feelings whether these are from the past, present or future. I primarily work in a person centred way following your lead on what you want to explore, using various techniques from my integrative training to help us explore in different ways that suit you.
