I am a Person-Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
Prior to qualifying as a counsellor, I worked within the legal profession helping individuals who were experiencing family related issues such as divorce, domestic violence and children related issues.
In my therapeutic practice I have experience of working as a bereavement counsellor and working for a charity helping clients who have survived rape and sexual violence.
It takes courage to talk to a therapist, but the rewards are usually worth the risk. I believe that in a safe therapeutic environment, Counselling can give you space and time to help you explore your thoughts and feelings. Having a confidential space to do this with someone who is independent of your situation may be all you need to help you to gain a deeper level of self-awareness and recognise your strengths enabling you to make positive changes and more towards a positive and fulfilling life.
I have a flexible approach in order to ensure all work is carried out in a way that best suits the client. This does not involve making decisions for the client nor giving advice or imposing beliefs on them.
