I am a BACP Accredited Person-Centred (PCA) trained counsellor and level 6 CPCAB supervisor which means my work is client-led and non-directive. I work with you in a way that facilitates personal growth, nurturing and developing your own inner resources. I work on the principle that it is you, who has the answers, and together we can search for what they are.
I have a varying field of expertise within my counselling practice which includes anxiety, depression, addiction, OCD, relationship issues, anger management, low confidence & self-esteem and work related issues. Commonly, feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, stuckness, confusion, inconsistent moods, to name but a few, are shared by many and I am practiced in working with these. I can work with clients individually and in couples. I have a separate qualification for couples counselling.
I have volunteered/worked in a Charitable Trust for Addictions, a Wellness Centre and Private Rehab Clinic for Drugs, Alcohol and other addictions. My work has covered a broad mix of different health issues with a diverse client base.
I have a special interest in Disordered Eating and Over Eating. Counselling can help with this. Exploration and self development I believe are an integral part in raising self awareness in discovering what drives a person to over eat and binge eat.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), am on their Accredited Register for Counselling Professionals and practice within their Ethical Framework. I hold a CRB certificate and have Professional Indemnity Insurance.
