At the core of my practise is to work relationally alongside you to establish a warm therapeutic working relationship with you, where you feel heard, valued and understood. I believe creating this environment together can offer opportunities for change to occur and for you to trust your own judgement and feel empowered by your own autonomy.
I would like to think I am a warm person and easy to get a long with. I welcome all walks of life and will meet you with acceptance and a non-judgmental attitude.
I have studied an MSc in Person Centred Psychotherapy at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute (University of Coventry). I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a member of The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI).
My own life experiences have shaped me to the person I am today and I feel open to the fluidity of life and know I am open to constant change in myself but also to that around me.
I have worked in the care industry for over 6 years and have managed a large team to enable them to support a diverse range of individuals who have an array of mental health issues such as schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder, learning difficulties, physical disabilities, visual impairments, and end of life care. The aim of the work we delivered was to enable the individuals to become more independent and to respect their autonomy, encouraging them to make their own decisions whilst feeling supported.
I have personal experience of bereavement, challenging relationships, relationship breakdowns, stress, anxiety, financial and lifestyle challenges and much more, which gives me a personal insight into the difficulties many of my clients are experiencing.
I have experience of working with a wide range of client issues such as:-
*Grief and loss, bereavement
*Sexual abuse and rape counselling
*Work-related bullying and stress
*Fertility and IVF difficulties
*Chronic illness and disability issues
*Eating difficulties and body image counselling
*Identity related issues
*Educational and learning difficulties such as Dyslexia and dyspraxia*Family dysfunction and difficult childhood
