About me and my therapy practice
I’m a qualified counsellor based in Burnley and working with clients in East Lancashire, Blackburn with Darwen, Calderdale and the surrounding areas
As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I follow their code of ethics.
I have additional qualifications in meditation and relaxation as well as training in supporting people who self harm, therapeutic work with children, domestic violence and mental health.
One of my main areas of interest is Autism, ASC including Asperger Syndrome. I have over 18 years experience of working with autistic children, adults and their families.
I offer children & young people a variety of creative ways of working which can allow the child to explore emotions, problems and experiences.
I offer children a way of communicating through Therapeutic Play, Creative Therapy, Relaxation, Sand tray, Drawing and Talking, Role Play, Painting and Drawing, Puppets, Movement, Creative Visualisation and Therapeutic stories.
I work with parents, grandparents and siblings as working together as a family can allow individuals to gain the view of others and an understand the child's process.
