About Me

I have a First class BSc (Hons) degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Professional Practice, from Salford University. I entered university following the decision to become a qualified counsellor; to help others, to attempt to learn more about myself, and to become more informed about the world around me, and my place within it. This decision has facilitated me with the invaluable opportunity to explore my individuality, and to embrace, both, my talents and human flaws with equanimity of understanding that has showcased that change has the capacity to be, at the same time, psychologically enhancing and emotionally challenging. 

I follow a Person-Centred, non-directive, pathway of therapy facilitating empathic understanding, genuineness, and unconditional acceptance of the client. I work within the Ethical framework for good practice, as laid down by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and these guidelines are encapsulated into the professional ethos of my work, irrespective of the subject matter that a client may bring.

I continue to practice in, both, the voluntary and statutory sector, and have counselled clients in relation to a plethora of issues which include bereavement, depression and anxiety, alcohol dependency, relationship difficulties, and work related problems. I receive regular Clinical Supervision, and maintain a commitment to Continued Professional Development in order to enhance reflective and quality provision.
