Prior to qualifying as a counsellor I worked within Human Resources. It was during this time I became aware of the value I found in listening to people’s difficulties and helping them find strategies to improve their lives. Life in itself brings everyone challenges from time to time, add work pressures on top it can leave even the most resourceful of people feeling lost and helpless.
In order to help myself have a greater understanding of listening and helping people, I undertook professional qualifications in order to become a counsellor and finally achieved my dream in 2012. Since then I’ve worked in many different setting including NHS, charity, colleges, schools and private practice.
I have experience of working with a number of issues including but not limited to – stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, bereavement and abuse. Depending on your needs I’m able to work short, medium or long term and in order to help you gain the most from therapy will incorporate different approaches to help you. These approaches include person centred, psychodynamic, humanistic and CBT.
I hope that by building a trusting relationship and creating a safe, non-judgemental environment I’ll be able to help you understand the difficulties you are facing and find answers to help you decide on the changes you need to make.
