With all my experience I am well placed to work with a range of issues, including clients with Health Anxieties, Underlying Health Conditions. those approaching End of Life, as well as those who have had Traumatic Experiences as a result of Medical Experiences, Birth Trauma, Baby Loss or a Cancer Diagnosis. I work as a Cancer Coach with Cancer UK and with Cruse Bereavement services for those experiencing loss and bereavement.
I have worked with families following Traumatic Births, Still Birth, Neonatal Deaths, Early Pregnancy Loss and Post Termination. I also work with parents experiencing Antenatal and Postnatal Depression, which can affect men as well as women.
I offer counselling to parents and families needing support with new parenting issues and adjusting to life with a baby and for dads who have found witnessing the birth traumatic, as so many do, but find they have no one to talk to about it. These are my specialities.
In addition to this I also work with other issues such as Bereavement, Pet Bereavement, Stress and Anxiety, Emotional Issues, Relationship Issues, Post Divorce Issues, Assertiveness, Self Confidence and Self Esteem Building. Relaxation and Sleep Issues.
I also offer Couples Counselling. As well as support to NHS staff, with an in depth understanding of the issues they face within their jobs and relationships.
I am a person centred practitioner but use a variety of integrated counselling methods and mindfulness to help you find a resolution and inner peace.
As part of my Cruse Bereavement work I have had additional training to work with Children and young people who have suffered a loss of a close family member, sibling or parent. So work with children over 10 and onwards.
I am fully DBS checked to work with adults and children and complete annual safeguarding training. Initial call to discuss your needs is free of charge So nothing to loose ... Just call today.
