I have many years’ experience supporting people through life changes in both their personal and professional lives. Originally employed in the manufacturing and aerospace industries, I became increasingly engaged with training, coaching and mentoring roles. More recently, I trained in a number of complimentary and healing therapies and eventually became drawn into the world of counselling.
I have had counselling myself, on several occasions, and understand how hard taking the first steps can be. However, by discovering a more balanced relationship with my own life challenges, I have also seen the rewards that therapy brings.
My counselling is informed by my varied life experience. I work from a holistic view point. That is to say, I see you as a whole person (body, mind, heart and soul). You have a natural ability when treated with care, respect, warmth and acceptance to discover ways of moving through your troubles. I believe a unique therapy will evolve for you that will bring you relief and insights. Together these will improve your world emotionally, intellectually, practically or spiritually.
You can trust me and know that my competence in Therapeutic and Psychotherapeutic Counselling will provide a safe and supportive environment for you. I know that as you grow in confidence and awareness you will be more able to explore your concerns and become more empowered to find and apply your own solutions.
I have been a volunteer with the Samaritans and worked with Mind, St Margaret’s Hospice and other local agencies. Also, I have facilitated Peer Support groups; run Anger Management courses and tutored counselling students towards their own qualifications.
I work within the ethical framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am a member on their Register of Counsellors
