I am a qualified Counsellor and Supervisor.
In addition, I offer courses working with various emotional or work related issues and have taught counselling skills and facilitated workshops for trainee Counsellors.

I have always been interested in listening to people and wanting to understand why people do what they do. During my working life in various office and management roles I particularly enjoyed building relationships with customers and colleagues.
Although I was doing well in my career I felt I wanted to do something more worthwhile and knew I had found my life purpose within the first few weeks of starting counselling training back in 2005.

Throughout my training I was determined that I was going to give up the 'day job' and become a Counsellor.
I feel very privileged that I have been able to do that.

My counselling approach is integrative using Humanistic and CBT therapy which means I can work flexibly depending on the unique individual needs of the client.

I have my own private practice situated in a relaxed and tranquil setting.
I have experience of long and short term counselling within my private practice, GP surgeries, and company referrals working with individuals and couples dealing with a wide range of issues including :anxiety, depression, stress, work related issues, low self-esteem, bereavement, relationship and family issues.

I continue to be very passionate about the benefits of counselling and how it can make a real difference to people's lives, by enabling people to make positive changes and discover their authentic self.
In addition to my counselling qualifications I have undertaken numerous Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops and am committed to further training as part of my ongoing personal and professional development.
