Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to study counselling. I am a fully qualified BACP counsellor working both privately and within a suicide bereavement agency. I also have experience working with cancer patients and their relatives who are going through difficult times.
I am committed to the well-being of all my clients and their needs while dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives. I provide short-term and long-term counselling to help you process difficult feelings, feel heard and supported so that you can re-discover your identity, creativity and start moving forward with your life.
I work in an integrative way. This means that I draw on various therapeutic approaches and strategies in order to adapt to you as an individual while working with depression, hopelessness, anxiety, fear and the following issues.
Areas of counselling I deal with:
Affairs and betrayals
Body dysmorphic disorder
Generalised anxiety disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
Sexual Abuse as a child
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
Separation and divorce
I also have great experience counselling elderly people and cancer patients within a charity - gaining great experience on how to deal with emotional stress that physical health issues can bring.
