About Me

I chose to work as a counsellor/psychotherapist because  I believe at some stage in people’s lives there is a need to reach out for help outside of family and friends for many different reasons and I feel that I can offer the help and support to make positive changes to lives and the difficulties a person maybe experiencing.  I believe a therapeutic relationship is of paramount importance with trust in the counsellor being the cornerstone of therapy, empowering people  and gain confidence in their own ability to move forwards.  I work with clients in a non-directive way on their journey to making these changes.

My Qualifications

My Experience

At present I am working for a service  which offers counselling to people suffering from cancer and also a bereavement counselling  service for families and I  also have a private practice and offer counselling  for a  variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, relationships, anger and issues related to self esteem/confidence.

In the past I have worked  in mental health in both acute and chronic  settings and in a day  centre with clients who have a variety of  mental health issues and I gained a lot of experience working with a large variety of clients in this challenging setting.

My Approach

My approach is humanistic/person-centred and work in a safe non judgmental and confidential setting with warmth, empathy and understanding  building a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship.  My hours are flexible
