Special interest areas

I have worked as a generic counsellor in NHS settings, including a large GP practice and a local hospital, as well as in Private Practice. I have worked extensively with survivors of abuse and for an organisation providing counselling for clients with difficulties relating to substance misuse. I am also an NCS Accredited Supervisor for trainee and qualified counsellors. .

Personal Statement

Depression and anxiety can affect any one of us because life is full of inevitable losses, sadness and difficulty. And sometimes you will need help. Counselling is an opportunity to talk through matters which worry or concern you, in a calm and confidential space. I have an open, honest and compassionate approach to my work, and will enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace, in a safe non-judgmental environment. Often, understanding why we react the way we do can be the key to changing how we think and respond to others. My work is person-centred/humanistic. This means that what is important to you is what we will focus on.
