I am a highly experienced humanistic counsellor, who has gained a wealth of experience of working with clients from all backgrounds.
My training and experience has led me to be able to support people who may have experienced issues surrounding:
Adoption, Abuse, Anger, Anxiety, Asylum, Bullying, Bereavement, Chronic illness, Cancer, Confidence, Disability, Employment, FGM, Gender, Identity, Inter-racial issues, LGBTQI+, Life transitions, Loss, Menopause, Racism, Relationships, Self-esteem, Self-worth, Sexuality, Sex, Stress, Violence, War & Weight issues.
Counselling became my career choice, after finding out first hand, how life-changing & powerful therapy really can be. Life isn't easy! Sometimes things aren't always fair, clear or within our control, but what we can have a grasp on, is choosing how we process the journey, regain strength and see how we can move forwards.
My professional qualifications include a Level 5 Diploma in Humanistic Counselling from the University of Chichester. I have vast experience of working with adults within the NHS and Higher Education sector. I attend regular clinical supervision to ensure that I work ethically and productively with my clients. I hold my 'Introduction to Mindfulness (MBSR) Certificate', which enables me to incorporate mindfulness techniques within sessions with my clients, when suitable.
I am also the founder & creator of the wellbeing blog #refresh and I sit on professional committees within Hampshire focussing on equality, diversity & wellbeing within the workplace.
