Welcome. It is a pleasure to meet you.
I began working life as a partner and graphic designer in a family print business. In 2000, I decided to change direction. While I loved the graphic design and the creativity of the print industry, I felt drawn to train as psychotherapist/counsellor. At the same time, I also reconnected to my spirituality and began attending courses in spiritual healing and other alternative therapies. The beauty of life is that sometimes, a set of synchronistic events can lead us to re-discover our unique gifts and potential. There are intuitive and mindful occurrences that awaken us and guide us to take a different path.
From 2007, I worked for many years' as a child, and adolescent counsellor in primary and secondary schools, supervised counsellors, networked and trained professionals, and co-ordinated/developed a children's and young people's bereavement service in a local hospice. Alongside this I also worked as an alternative therapist using ancient techniques such as reiki and spiritual healing.
Events in 2012, led me to take a break from working life and after rediscovering myself in a new way, I returned to working life. I now teach in Adult Education and work as a healer, supervisor and counsellor in private practice with children, young people and adults.
I work ethically, spontaneously and intuitively and have professional and life experience that I believe helps me to connect with individuals in a unique and compassionate approach. I am a fully registered and qualified BACP accredited psychotherapist, supervisor and tutor that can provide counselling and training to adults, children, young people and professionals. I work within a range of areas related to psychological health, wellness, personal and spiritual development.
Through groups and one to one sessions, I provide a safe space for individuals to talk, play and be heard - enabling individuals to reconnect to their higher wisdom, inner strength, resilience, and resources helping them to reach their true potential. I am fully committed to offering a service that is welcoming, warm, supportive and inclusive.
I provide face to face services and online services via Skype or Zoom.
At times when life becomes challenging, it can be helpful to have someone walk alongside even if only for a short time. As the famous poet George Elliott says:
"Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another."
