Through my own professional and personal experiences counselling has taught me that all challenges, no matter how difficult or painful can bring opportunities for growth and empowerment. Counselling is a journey, it can be long or short term but it must have certain factors in place to allow change. What I offer you a safe environment where you can feel able to share with me the issues you are facing, to feel listened to without passing judgment and together looking at ways to create a way forward.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Working within their Ethical Framework of good practice, it also means I am committed to my personal and professional development as well as attending regular Clinical Supervision. I am DBS checked and hold full Professional Civil Liability Insurance
Working with all ages from 3yr to 89yr+ requires different approaches with each individual. As an Integrative counsellor it enables me to draw on several different therapeutic approaches which I tailor to the needs of each client. When working with children I work very gently to understand their life events. By using creative play it allows me to enter their world from their perspective. I have undertaken further specialized training in areas of Child Abuse and Autism along with my CPCAB qualification in Children’s Counselling.
Compassion and understanding are a very strong skill set I have when it comes to Bereavement and working for Cruse for several years afforded me a great deal of experience in this field. Being an animal lover and witnessing at times the grief and loss of a client’s beloved pet led to my Diploma in Pet Bereavement.
Through my experiences of working with children students, adults and couples, I have worked with various issues from bereavement, loss, attachment, family divorce, relationship difficulties, abuse, frustrations, self-esteem, racial discrimination, diversity, safeguarding, FGM, autism, LGBTQ, exam pressure, mental health, PTSD, rape.
