I have worked as a Person Centred counsellor since 1999, starting in a GP surgery before going into private practice. I became Accredited by the BACP in 2004 and a Director of Counselling Works in the same year.
I have much experience working with both couples and individuals, covering a broad range of issues. Couples counselling is a particular interest of mine as is Autism of which I have a good knowledge and understanding. I work as a trainer in these subjects and also as a supervisor to other therapists.
Events in life can result in tough times and the difficulties that arise from them can overwhelm, be troubling, isolating. It really helps to talk, be truly understood and I aim to create a safe, genuinely caring and confidential space for you do this. I am compassionate, empathic and work sensitively to understand and help make sense of how you feel.
It is important to me that I do my best to help and support people through difficult times. No matter how big or small people consider their problems to be, I think it is the person and how they feel about them that matters most of all.
