About me and my therapy practice
Behind the signs and symptoms of mental health concerns there is often a story, perhaps many stories that have lead you to this point.
As an experienced Accredited counsellor with my training in Person Centred Therapy training completed in 2008 - I have a strong belief that each one of us can find the answers from within ourselves in which to unravel our concerns, worries, confusion... and in time gain clearer insight of our circumstances and work out our own next steps.
How is this done? With the help of a caring, supportive, empathic and confidential counselling relationship.
Often there is no quick fix, but given time (however long this may take) there will be a better understanding of how things are for you and how you want to be.
In conjunction with my private work (supporting those aged 18 and above), I also work for a local counselling charity, supporting clients (adults and young people ) and facilitate a parent support groups, for those who's children experience mental health / behavioural difficulties. Much of my work to date has covers: anxiety, depression, self harm, suicide ideation, ME/CFS, bereavement, autism, living with cancer, relationship difficulties, alcohol misuse and sexual/gender identity struggles.
In addition to this I am an Accredited Instructor member of MHFA England delivering Youth Mental Health First Aid (for a local NHS CCG) and Instructor of Adult Mental Health First Aid too.
For the foreseeable future, counselling is currently being provided on an online forum or over the phone (to clients aged 18 and over). The sessions usually will take place on a weekly basis, on the same day and at the same time for a 50 minute session.
