BACP Accredited counsellor
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" Carl Rogers
My theoretical approach to counselling is Person-centred which prizes the autonomy of the client. The approach seeks to help you explore your own thoughts, feelings, behaviours and beliefs in order to develop self-awareness and resilience to cope more effectively in your own world. I seek not to change but to help my clients to work towards finding peace in self-acceptance at their own pace.
Since 2017 I have worked as an associate in private practice at Counselling Works where I work with individual adult clients, however, my main area of experience is with adolescents.
I have worked as a Counsellor in a local secondary school for 12 years. The work is challenging and rewarding, and I have helped youngsters whose issues have covered anxiety, depression, self-esteem, bullying, friendship/relationships, family issues, school refusing, rape and sexual exploitation, drug and alcohol misuse, LGBTQ and gender identity, and many other issues that may arise in a modern diverse community of school students.
As the parent of three young adults with ASD, I have an understanding of living with autism which I am able to bring to my work as a counsellor and feel that I am able to offer autistic clients a sincere understanding of the issues they may face.
