“Sometimes what you are most afraid of doing is the very thing that can set you free”

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.
