I am a qualified clinical counsellor, primarily practicing from a Person-Centred Approach to therapy, grounded on the values of empathic understanding, acceptance and congruence. I am currently studying for my MA in clinical counselling, looking into the effects of dementia on family adult carers.
I have extensive experience of working within both the public and private sector, more recently practicing within the voluntary sector providing counselling for adult carers.
I strongly believe in working at your pace, whilst always providing a trusting and safe environment for you to find ways to explore your feelings and to understanding your emotions that are causing you concern.
My personal and academic interest and skills are working with adults who are caring for family or friends diagnosed with dementia.
I work with people who are experiencing feelings of loss and bereavement, stress, anxiety, depression, low-mood, post-traumatic stress, bullying, abuse, health issues, work related problems, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.
If you feel we could work together, I will help you explore and process your difficult thoughts and feelings that you are experiencing and will support you to work with them and through them.
Through exploring, discovering and accepting your emotions, you can find a way to move forward towards a better and more fulfilled and meaningful life.
I hold a current enhanced DBS disclosure and am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical framework.
My main areas of counselling experience are:
Low Self-esteem and confidence
Palliative counselling and support
