I am an integrative counsellor, which can include looking at how the past influences present feelings and behaviours whilst, staying in the present to explore coping strategies and ways of dealing with anxiety, depression and loss.
My aim is to develop a genuine trusting counselling relationship with clients to support them in building on their strengths, believing that they have the ability to reach their own potential.
Anyone can need help at different times in life, the important thing is to take the first step and look for help. I offer a calm space and a place for you to feel safe and share your feelings in confidence, to reflect on what’s going on in your life and to get back to living that life to the full.
My counselling experience includes an NHS placement looking at the effects of ill health with associated losses and volunteering with CRUSE bereavement support.
I was a Samaritans volunteer for eight years.
Further professional development and training has been undertaken in Anxiety Disorder, Trauma, and Mindfulness.
