ABOUT ME

"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination"

-Carl Rogers

I believe entering counselling is a brave move.  Once you recognise you need help, counselling is your first step to exploring how to resolve the events and circumstances life throws at you.  

 

My foundation training in counselling was at The Minster Centre in an Integrative approach.  I specialised and qualified in a Person-Centred approach, with Humanistic influences.  I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor.  As an Accredited counsellor I have achieved a high standard of knowledge, experience and development that is widely recognised and valued throughout the industry.

My experience includes; working in a hospice; specialising in bereavement, loss and change.  I work with clients exploring the emotional effects of living with dyslexia (and associated diagnosis) in adulthood.  My most recent experience is as a COVID -19 first line trauma response; offering NHS medical and nursing staff emotional support during this pandemic. 

 

I have also provided affiliated support to GIRES (Gender Identity Research and Education Society) and am a registered counsellor with BUPA and accept referrals.

Above are my areas of specialist knowledge/interest and in addittion I can help with a range of common life problems such as, depression and low mood, self esteem, relationships (family dynamics as well as partners), LGBTQ+, stress and anxiety, and alcohol use.
