I trained to be a counsellor because I believe when you want to make changes in your life counselling can support you to do so. Many people reach a crossroad in their life and don’t know which route to take. I can encourage you in taking what may be daunting first steps of a new journey: empowering you to improve your quality of life.
I believe you know yourself better than anyone and so my role will be to listen to your experiences and help you to develop and change as you determine. I will use my skills and experience to facilitate this. I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties, and particularly working with clients who have experienced bereavement.
Prior to practising as a counsellor I worked for Adult Social Care, initially supporting individuals with sensory impairments (predominantly hearing and sight loss) and later a more generalised team working with individuals experiencing both physical and psychological barriers, along with their carers. This provides me with a diverse range of experience of working with adults as well as an understanding of working within the public sector.
