About me and my therapy practice

Counselling is a very personal experience and is different for everyone.  I offer a safe and confidential service enabling you to start to explore your difficulties, without judgment or criticism.  Changes large or small can make you feel unstable and/or uprooted.  In the environment of The Oak Therapy Room, I can support you to find your feet once again, either on new ground or that which is familiar.  You do not have to face these changes alone.   

I have over 15 years experience working with Adults, Young People and Children.  Previously for ten years, I worked within Education supporting young people close to permanent exclusion.   I also have over 4 years experience working within the NHS.  Working as part of a nursing team within CAMHs on an inpatient ward, supporting young people who were unable to keep themselves safe within the community.    

My knowledge and understanding of Children and Young Peoples development enables me to work with empathy, compassion and unconditional acceptance.  In addition, I have experience of working with issues such as Grief, Bereavement, Post Traumatic Stress and Depression.

My introductory session is free and will last for up to one hour. Within that time I am available to answer any questions you may have within an environment where understanding is crucial.

I know how scary it can be to make that first move to get the help you need.  I would like to reassure you that trust and respect are integral to the way I work as a counsellor.  Together we will go at your pace and with what you need.
