Member Status: Accredited

Location: Leicester

I am a Person Centred Counsellor, which means the focus is on you and what you would like to bring to the sessions, I also use integrative techniques. I will work with you providing support as we explore and work through your issues, helping you to reconnect with your inner values and growing your sense of self-worth and resilience.

My most recent work involves supporting women recovering from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse, providing emotional and therapeutic support.

I also have over 20 years’ experience in management. I have a wealth of experience in supporting people with work related issues and a passionate advocate for health and wellbeing in the workplace.

I offer online, telephone and face to face counselling sessions. My availability is Tuesdays to Fridays daytime. I also offer limited evening appointments throughout the week.

My practice is based in a quiet area of Oadby - free parking is available.

I offer a free 30-minute phone call, where we will discuss your circumstances and how we can work together. You will have the opportunity to ask questions before deciding whether to work with me.

I am a member of the NCS and am on a register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
