“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”
― Carl R. Rogers

I am dedicated to helping individuals navigate their mental health journeys and achieve personal growth. My approach is rooted in empathy, active listening, and evidence-based therapeutic techniques, ensuring that each client feels heard, valued, and supported.  I have had the privilege of working with diverse populations, including adolescents, adults, and families, in various settings including education.  I can provide treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and life transitions.  I also work with Special Learning Needs.   
My Therapeutic Approach is client-centred, tailoring therapy to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual. My practice integrates techniques from , Person-Centred Therapy, Psychotherapy, Solution-Focused Hypnosis and Mindfulness Therapy, fostering a collaborative environment where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings without judgment. 
My Journey:   I obtained a  degree and post-graduate diploma in Social Psychology (a passion of mine) as my first step towards training as a Counsellor.  I took a break and qualified as a P.G.C.E. SEN Teacher and worked in Special Needs for 10 years and arrived full circle back to further training as a Counsellor & Psychotherapist.  I have learned so much on my journey from understanding the needs of life's most vulnerable children, young adults with learning disabilities and adults with all kinds of issues realising that what we are all striving for is 'being who we truly are' in a world that is sometime difficult to navigate.   
I believe every person has the capacity for change and growth. My role as a counsellor is to provide a safe, supportive space where clients can develop self-awareness, build resilience, and discover effective strategies for overcoming challenges. I am committed to empowering my clients, helping them to unlock their potential and lead fulfilling lives

My interest in Mindfulness was inspired by the practice of Aikido and Buddhism. Having developed my knowledge, I then decided to become a practitioner from a Psychology perspective by embarking on extra training in a MA in Mental Health and Psychological Therapies.   After this, I trained as a Mindfulness Teacher with Author of 'Mindfulness for Dummies, by Shamash Alidina' - and what an amazing course that was!  Mindfulness is a practice that serves me well and I would like to share this with you on your journey towards change.
