ABOUT ME

My journey so far

My professional background is varied and I started working life in retail. During my late 20s, I moved into the education sector working in primary and secondary schools, where I discovered I connected most to my true self when supporting young people in an equal relationship rather than the ‘teacher/pupil’ relationship. This is where I started my counselling journey. The moment I started counselling training in the evenings, I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my working life.

I hold a deep passion for learning and furthering my professional development in the field of psychotherapy, believing it is never too late to sign up for more studying and training!

I love all animals and the outdoors, so I volunteer when I can, at a local equine therapy centre, helping to look after the horses and assisting in running therapeutic workshops for professionals as respite.

In my spare time, I enjoy abstract painting, playing and listening to music, writing, singing and dancing in the kitchen, and walking

FINDING YOUR OWN STRENGTH

Tailored approach

I draw upon different theories to ensure a tailored approach for you, as everyone is unique. This approach allows us to look at you as a whole person, mind, body, feelings and soul to come together and connect in harmony. I offer ‘talking therapy’ and this allows you to discuss your problems and any difficult feelings you encounter in a safe, confidential environment.

Find inner strength

Humanistic integrative counsellors believe in their client’s ability to find inner strength and take a sense of ownership over their lives. I believe you hold the capacity to fulfil your talents whilst developing self-compassion. I will work with you to realise these potentials and make sense of your past experiences.

Grow With Green Sky

I will take into consideration how your external world affects you and together actively engage in the process of assessing your problems or issues, work out what will happen in therapy and review the outcomes and your growth as we go.

EVERYONE IS UNIQUE

DISCOVERING THE TRUE YOU

I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you that we can use to work through your issues, build your self-confidence and appreciate that you always have options. I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you.

I hope to help you to discover your own abilities and autonomy, so that you can cope with current and future problems, moving forward.
