About me

I think it takes courage to reach a place where you admit to needing some help. I often find it helps clients to know that I am not in their social circle so everything they disclose and work through is not going to reach family and friends. I offer a safe, empathic, supportive space where you can talk things through without being judged and be listened to with understanding and compassion.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a counsellor for just under ten years, after working in a college as a learning support assistant I noticed how the students’ often chaotic and at times traumatic backgrounds hindered their education which led me into training to be a counsellor.

Summary of qualifications & experience :

  • Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling
  • Accreditation with BACP and also on their register
  • Level 4 in Integrative counselling award
  • Level 2 and 3 in counselling skills and theory

COUNSELLING SERVICE

WHERE WE WILL MEET

When I am able to see clients face to face for my private practice this takes place in one of the counselling rooms in a community centre/church. There is free parking and a lift on the ground floor for mobility access. There is a large entrance to the building with facilities on the ground floor. The centre is at the North end of the town.

During the current climate, all counselling services will take place over the telephone or on a zoom online video.
