As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that each of us has the wisdom and inner resources to find our own path through life and discover who we truly are. However, sometimes difficulties and life events can cause confusion and doubt, making it hard to see a clear way forward. At times like this, it can be helpful to have someone who will walk alongside you, offering the time and space to explore and process your thoughts and feelings with non-judgmental support.
I aim to provide a warm, friendly and confidential space, where you can feel safe to be yourself and be heard. We will work together, with the feelings or issues that you choose to bring, at a pace that feels comfortable for you.
My other related experience includes working as a support worker in various settings (most recently in mental health), coordinator and tutor at an NHS Wellbeing and Recovery College, and as a research assistant in mental health and social care. I also teach mindfulness and compassion-based living skills, having completed the Mindfulness Association’s teacher training pathway in 2017.
I am a trainee counsellor on the MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Keele University. I am also a student member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and abide by their Ethical Framework.
