I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist with a particular interest in female Mental Wellbeing, dealing with difficult life challenges from puberty right through to late adulthood.
As a therapist, I provide a safe, respectful, supportive, non-judgmental environment while helping you to unravel and resolve the difficulties you are currently facing. By adopting a person-centred approach to address your needs and support your thought process of looking at circumstances in different ways.
With over 17 years’ experience in the area of female health as a medical representative for HPV prevention, Contraception, Fertility and hormonal implications I appreciate the stresses, pressures and challenges females face from a physical, emotional and mental perspective.
It is my personal goal when I sit in front of a client, be it face to face or online to support and encourage the person to find their feet again, to understand their thought patterns and if required implement solution-focused therapies to support the success of the client’s goals and desired outcomes
After completing a BA Hons in Psychology and currently completing a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy along with having spent many years working as a volunteer with adolescents in difficulties, suffering from anxiety, stress and depression I have great respect for the demands both adolescents and adults face in their daily lives.
