About Me

A counsellor helped me with my own emotional suitcase, subsequently years later I decided that I would take my own experiences and work with people to help them find the clarity they were looking for.

Sounds all very simple doesn’t it?

It wasn’t.  It was a journey.  A journey where I gained a huge amount of self-awareness. Self-awareness is a powerful thing and in working with me I am hopeful that you will feel the same.  It’s not that life’s arrows won’t hit us again, because they will, it’s having the knowledge and resilience to overcome them when they do and to be able to approach life with a different perspective.

I believe our past has an influence on how we are in the present and that counselling can enable us to come to terms with what we have experienced in our lives.

Whilst you work with me you will have a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to work all this out.

How do you know I am qualified?

Scroll down and you can see my qualifications.  My course was integrative, which means that I have studied a variety of counselling theories.  I am an Accredited Registrant Member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I work to their ethical guidelines.

I have worked in bereavement and received formal bereavement training with Farleigh Hospice.   I have also worked at Metro HIV Charity.  I have worked with counselling students, people experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems and I have worked with people who just feel lost, or who want to communicate better, or to understand why they think, feel and behave the way that they do.

Continued professional development (CPD) is something that I am passionate about and I take up various training courses throughout the year.  Not only is CPD so important for a counsellor’s future growth, it is part of my registration requirement to the BACP and NCS.  I have just completed my Foundation Degree In Counselling.

So, If you would like someone to help you with your emotional suitcase, then please contact me in confidence, either by email or the mobile number found on the contact page.  If I cannot answer when you call, please do leave a voicemail.
