EMPATHY AT THE HEART OF COUNSELLING

It is an act of bravery to grow, to heal and to understand ourselves better.

My learning began very young and started a lifelong journey of understanding human behaviour and how to recover from traumatic or challenging experiences.  Due to this experience, I began counselling from a very young age, having been asked to by people of all ages, to help them or their family members.

I have 30 years experience of giving counselling and been an NHS Specialist Adult mental health therapist, Specialist eating disorders therapist, an Addictions therapist, a CAMHS therapist and a Trauma therapist.   I am also neurodivergant informed and am currently developing a new Government counselling service for Special schools.  I am also trained and experienced in helping people in challenging relationships.


I bring warmth, understanding, compassion and a knowledge of the struggles life can bring, with a deep commitment to working alongside you. 

When life is hard we do what we must to survive. I will draw upon a lifetime of understanding and learning to help you find ways to navigate life in a way that serves you, and will support you to flourish.  Together we will share a safe space where I will draw upon a wide range of approaches tailored to meet your individual needs.  You are the expert on you, and by working together, we will begin a journey towards the life you want.

ADULT THERAPY

I offer a non-judgemental, supportive space to help you feel better and find adaptive ways of coping.  My belief is that you are the expert on yourself, and that together through exploration; the sharing of insights and knowledge; practical strategies and psychoeducation; we can work to make things feel better, in whatever form this is for you.
