I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work extensively with clients on a range of issues and are experienced in delivering short-term and long-term counselling both in person and online.
I have been in private practice for five years and I counsel young people, adults of all ages and couples. I tailor sessions to suit the client as counselling is very subjective and each individual responds to different types of counselling. As a counsellor I have worked in education at both a primary school and college level counselling students with a diverse range of issues. In addition to my private practice I was a volunteer for six years with Cruse Bereavement Care.
Prior to becoming a counsellor I have worked in similar roles within the Health Authority, Local Authority and the voluntary sector. In addition as a tutor for adults with learning and other disabilities I facilitated various groups exploring emotions, coping with stress and anger, self-esteem and confidence building as well as relationships and bereavement.
