I am an integrative therapeutic counsellor based in the Letchworth/Baldock area of Hertfordshire; however, as I am able to offer a full range of Online Counselling options, location is not a barrier, to accessing counselling with me. Counselling with me, is a partnership; where you are in charge. My role is to support and facilitate you, depending on your individual needs and preferences. Sometimes it may feel like you are unable to see things clearly, so I can help to reflect issues and bring them into clearer focus. Other times it may be you are very clear on the problem or issue, and know what you want to do; but need support to weigh up the pros and the cons; with an independent person; who doesn't have a vested interest in the decision you reach. Wherever you are, being trained in an integrative way, means I can look to match where you are and move along with your individual needs. I have a background as a nurse in the NHS and as a trainer in health and social care, which I believe is helpful when working as a counsellor. Counselling can provide a powerful space, where you can feel supported unconditionally and where I can support your self-discovery.
I have a particular interest in working with bereavement and loss and have undertaken additional training with Cruse Bereavement Care.
I also feel a particular area of strength for me that I can offer you, is around managing change, in particular change due to changes in health, but also changes in relationships. These changes can be difficult to cope with and adjust to and I do believe counselling can be helpful for addressing some of the challenges this brings. I am adding to my skills currently studying Transactional Analysis which can be very useful for relationship issues.
I am a registered member of the BACP, a member of ACTO for Online standards and UKATA for TA work.
