About me and my therapy practice
If we experience times when difficulties can feel too much to face, personal counselling can offer opportunities to explore our issues in a supportive, confidential space. Together, we can focus on you and help you to explore whatever is bothering you. Sharing our feelings, being heard and accepted can enable a deeper understanding of ourselves. Over time, the process can help to release our innate potential and discover future possibilities.
I aim to offer and build an unconditional therapeutic relationship with you based on trust, genuineness and acceptance no matter what you bring to counselling sessions. I am a fully qualified Person Centred Counsellor / Psychotherapist. I studied at the University of Chichester in West Sussex and gained my Counselling Certificate and Diploma. I'm fully insured to practice and also registered with General Data Protection Regulations body. I can offer some home visits for those with reduced mobility or who are unable to come to sessions outside the home.
Previously I worked in the National Health Service for more than 20 years as a Registered Nurse. During my last 10 years of nursing I worked as a Community Nurse and then gained my Degree in Public Health and worked as a Health Visitor. I have extensive experience of working with adults of all ages and have worked closely with older people and with families.
I am also currently a volunteer counsellor with two local charities.
