Q&As

I love working with people and seeing them progress, build awareness and make the changes they want to. I work in a client-centred way, meaning that the focus is on you, what you want, or need, how you want to move forward, and what changes you want to make.

I am passionate about good emotional and mental health. It can be something we take for granted when it needs to be something we invest time effort, and sometimes, when we need to, money, into. (It can feel self-indulgent, but in reality, it is often self-preservation.)

It is a privilege to witness the growth and change in a person, and an honour to be their confidante - sometimes the only person they have told a secret.

There is much that I love about counselling, but for me, the best part is when a client feels ready to move on. I know then that I have done a good job!

I have been in practice since 2006 and teaching counselling since 2009. I decided to set up my own training company in 2015 after working a 55 hour week and travelling 350 miles a week to work and back for over 5 years. It was a leap of faith, but I have no regrets.

I have a wealth of experience in various settings:
Experience - In practice since 2006

In the last three years, I have been working with Mindfulness in my work with clients who have shown an interest in it, which has significantly helped their process.

I have extensive experience in working with clients in the following fields;

Addiction
Anger
Anxiety
Attachment
Bereavement and Loss
Depression
Domestic Abuse: Emotional, Physical, Sexual
Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (formerly known as Borderline Personality Disorder)
Family Issues
Personal Development
Relationship Issues
Schizoid personality disorder
Self Harm/Injury
Sexual abuse
Stress Management
Trauma and PTSD

Other areas of experience are:

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME
Phobias
Sexual Problems
I have worked in the following settings:

Private health care in a psychiatric hospital
Addiction Unit (12 Step programme)
Private Mental Health Care
NHS setting
Currently in private practice

I can provide remote sessions via Zoom or Doxy and I completed an 80-hour course on working ethically and effectively with clients remotely. This was completed last April.

I now work remotely, but when the restrictions were lifted last year I ensured that I had at least 45 minutes between clients to enable a good clean of the room, (door handles, door panels, the bathroom handles, loo, taps, sink etc..) Individual small towels for hand drying were provided in the bathroom and would be washed at high heat after each use. Until restrictions are lifted sufficiently, or vaccines are done I will continue to work remotely to ensure that I limit contact with others. I currently have a lateral flow test every 2 weeks to ensure that I don't have COVID-19 without symptoms and will continue to do so until the need has passed.
