I am an experienced counsellor & supervisor offering a safe, relaxed, confidential & non-judgemental space to work through your issues at your pace. I aim to ensure you feel as comfortable to talk about your issues as you can, to feel listened to, supported, and accepted.
I am passionate about helping others though counselling & it's a always a great privilege to work with clients to gain some clarity or feel calmer & accepting of themselves. I am a humanistic counsellor & work according to your need bringing in various techniques as felt needed with your agreement including mindfulness, journalling, CBT & EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique often known as 'Tapping'). My interest & passion is in helping people come to a calmer, more peaceful place.
My interest is in personal trauma and the impact this has on mental health & well-being. Personal trauma, small or big, past, present, one off incidents or long-term/ongoing, can have immense detrimental impact on confidence, self-esteem, ability to think, cope & relax and lead to living with worry, anxiety, stress, low mood & depression. Trauma is held in our bodies & can manifest in inexplicable pain and can also affect responses to seemingly normal people/situations having a negative impact on family, friendships & colleagues leading to feeling lonely.
I have worked with adults & young people in person, via telephone, online and have also run & facilitated group work. As part of my commitment to the profession I am also closely involved with Counselling Northwest as a member & committee member. I offer Wednesday & Friday daytime and evening & weekend appointments.
I also offer counselling to counselling students and those wanting to work on self-exploration for personal development.
I am Registered Member of the BACP & an Accredited EFT Practitioner, fully insured, undertake regular supervision and regularly undertake opportunities for learning & ongoing professional development (some of which is listed below).
