I am a fully qualified counsellor who believes passionately in the power of therapy. I feel that every individual should have the opportunity, time and space to talk openly without the fear of judgement. I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is vitally important. Our relationship will be built on trust and respect. I welcome people from all faiths, backgrounds, cultures and LGBTQ communities with a non-judgmental approach.
I undertake regular training and attend monthly supervision to enhance my practice and comply with BACP requirements.
I work part time for a counselling charity based in Manchester where I see adult individuals on a weekly basis. Within this work I have helped people who have been struggling with anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, anger and bereavement.
I have worked in an educational setting for twenty years. Therefore I have unique understanding of the challenges faced by young people today. I also recognise the demands placed on those working within the teaching profession and the educational sector.
