About Counselling

I help to create a safe and nurturing relationship where you (or your child) can explore your inner world. I can help you understand how your experiences have changed who you are, and together, we can start to explore who you wish to be, not who you have learnt to be.

We all need a safe place to talk to someone impartial: somewhere we feel understood. To have someone help us understand our thoughts and feelings and help us say what we truly think and feel and recognise what we wish to change.

Counselling is about the relationship and feeling safe to explore our inner world and worries with someone who understands and allows us to speak freely without fear of judgement—specifically someone who also has similar neurotype lived experiences.

I qualified as a Person-Centred counsellor/psychotherapist in 2007, and I support adults and young people. Since then, I have also gained training in CBT, Gestalt, and the use of art and creative methods. I am Accredited with both the BACP and NCS and am a Level 2 Professional with ACTO (online counsellors). I have also gained over 100 speciality training certificates, and my enhanced DBS and safeguarding training is updated every three years.

My core counselling training to date includes:

-Level 2 in Counselling Skills

-Level 3 in Counselling Practice

-Level 4 in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

-Level 4 Advanced Diploma in Counselling Practice and Theory

-Batchelor of Science (BSc) First Class Honours Degree in Counselling

-Master of Arts (MA) Distinction in Counselling and Psychotherapy

Parallel to my counselling career, I have also had a 20-year+ career supporting vulnerable children and families, including managerial roles, gaining qualifications which include:

-Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People

-Level 3 Diploma in Supporting Children in Schools
