I have run support groups with Macmillan and Jos cervical cancer trust. i am a qualified facilitator of the Hope course. I currently work in private practise, focusing on patients who are affected by physical illness and the emotional impact this may have on their lives.
I see my work as an adjustment to you and your needs. A collaborative process between you and I.
I am experienced in working with health related issues, anxiety, sleep, hospital stays, pre/ post surgery, recovery and rehabilitation, grief and loss and bereavement as well as relationships, self esteem and self worth and identity issues relating to health and life stages.
I also work and have experience of working with more general mental health issues.
I offer an environment of:
I may invite you to work with a solution focussed approach. I may also invite you to work creatively. Keeping a journal or suggest other activities which may help increase your own self understanding, awareness and development.
I work both short term and long term and this is something we can discuss and review as we go along. It is you who is central to this process and I check for clarification and understanding.
I provide an exploitative and supportive opportunity for you to be heard and valued in a safe and confidential setting.
