about me

“In my relationships with persons I have found that it does not help, in the long run, to act as though I were something that I am not.”

 Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy

First and foremost I am a human being, with emotions, just like you and have also had my own struggles. I will bring to our sessions not only my qualifications but also my life experience. Counselling is all about the relationship we build together and with this in mind I think you will find my approach very down to earth.  


For me, counselling has felt like a calling and comes very naturally, I look forward to combining all these ingredients to help you work through whatever is troubling you and help you make choices that sit well with who you really are. We can do this together!


I have a degree in Humanistic Counselling which I undertook at The University of Chichester.   I am a member of the BACP and work ethically under their guidelines.  


Along with my degree I have undertaken further training in the following:


Working with Internal Conflict

Safeguarding

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Standing in your Power,  An Introduction To Anger And How to be With Your Own

Transactional Analysis

Working with ex-offenders


I am committed to furthering and updating my knowledge with Continuing Professional Development.


I have worked with clients who have struggled with depression, anxiety, loneliness, psychosis, borderline personality disorder, low self esteem, relationship problems and many other issues, large or small.


I  volunteer, counselling people who care for others and separately working with ex-offenders.


I am fully insured.
