 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 private counselling agency, 3 years spent working in a hospice; specialising in bereavement, loss and change.  I also work with clients helping with the emotional effects of living with dyslexia (and associated diagnosis) in adulthood.  Therefore my specialist knowledge is in, but not limited to these areas. 

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.
