Location: Nottingham

Flexible in approach and accepting of differences, I am experienced in telephone and online counselling, as well as face to face. I offer person-centred support. I take into account the social, personal and environmental influences on an individual's life. In partnership with the individual, we explore social contexts, loss and mourning, and building constructive thinking and assertiveness.
