Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
I am a Relational Counsellor working in a Person Centred Approach which means that I always work with each client in mind as an individual. I believe that by creating a comfortable, non-judgemental environment together with being genuine and empathic this helps clients in finding their own solutions to their problems. I also believe that by taking part in counselling it can encourage increased self esteem and a greater openness to experience. It also promotes better self understanding, lower levels of defensiveness, guilt and insecurity. It helps create more positive and comfortable relationships with others and an increased capacity to experience and express feelings at the moment they occur.
Change and growth can come through counselling and by having an independent person it can enable you to effect change and to become emotionally independent.
I have years of experience in the private and charity sectors working in both short and long term counselling. I believe that by working in such diverse agencies I have the knowledge and experience to help you.

Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents
I trained as a person-centred counsellor, which simply means our sessions are all about you. I’d like to welcome you to a confidential and non-judgemental safe space where you can talk freely to explore your inner-self. Together, we can discover any underlying issues behind the difficulties you are experiencing and by overcoming the ghosts of your past, you will be in a better place to move forward with your life.
For over fifteen years, I have helped both adults and children to cope with bereavement, stress, anxiety, eating disorders and a range of mental health issues within the public, charitable and private sectors. In addition to simple talking therapies, I can offer many styles to suit your personal journey. These include Cognitive-Based Therapy (CBT) for proactive exploration of underlying troubles; guided visualisations enabling a state of pure relaxation and other relaxation techniques including aromatherapy. For your children, play and art therapies can enable self-expression in ways that talking may not.
If you are a qualified counsellor, or in the process of qualifying, I am also certified to offer supervision of your professional development. Students, of course, will be entitled to a competitive discount.
