Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor
I am an experienced, warm and approachable counsellor who is able to build trusting relationships with people. It is this relationship between you and your counsellor that is so important in enabling you to explore difficulties, get to know yourself better and reflect on the things you would like to do differently in your life and relationships.
I have been working as a counsellor for over ten years with a wide variety of people from all walks of life with all sorts of difficulties. In addition to my qualifications and extensive experience I also have the personal qualities that help people to feel relaxed and able to talk about their difficulties, although I understand that this can be difficult and I respect the client’s need to take their time with the counselling process.
As well as working with individuals I also work with couples offering a supportive space helping couples to understand each other better and explore the dynamics of their relationship, as well as enabling them to develop better communication and empathy for each other all of which can help with the ‘stuckness’ that can often be experienced in relationships.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and am committed to my on-going personal and professional development. I am professional in my approach whilst being very human!
I have both personal and professional experience of fertility issues and provide a space where people - single people and couples - can explore the feelings in relation to their fertility difficulties. For people considering fertility treatment it can be a challenging journey and I can provide a space where people can explore and consider the implications of the different types of fertility treatment. There are specific issues to consider for single women and lesbians in relation to fertility treatment and i am experienced in helping women to explore these.
I am have many years experience in working with people who are struggling with sexual or gender identity issues and understand the particular difficulties that sexuality and gender minority groups face.
I have worked for many years in the 'helping professions' of nursing, social care and mental health and have worked with individuals couples and groups.
