"Working towards enhancing your self-esteem, self-belief and making your life feel like a better place.."
As a Person Centred Counsellor I am extremely passionate about providing clients with a safe space, as well as a supportive therapeutic relationship. I create a versatile and person-centred environment, where I can offer support in an empathetic, congruent and non-judgemental way, with the aim of helping my client achieve growth and fulfillment in the areas they want support with.
I can use a number of different approaches in helping a client with anxiety, sadness, depression and addiction, as I appreciate that the emotional requirements vary dramatically from one client to the next, so aim to help equip the client with practical techniques to allow them to make their daily lives more manageable.
With addiction I discuss the clients’ habitual behaviour, their associated triggers, and help them to make informed decisions.
I started my journey towards becoming a Counsellor back in 2009 when I studied Person Centred Counselling at the University of Brighton. I loved it so much that I went on to do a BA Honours Counselling course at the University of Greenwich, which covered various different modalities across the counselling spectrum. The whole experience of becoming a Counsellor has been life changing, and I am extremely passionate about providing clients with a safe space, as well as a supportive therapeutic relationship.
I also provide specialist mental health mentoring. My job is to provide effective personalised, practical and psychological support to university students, through the processes of mentoring and coaching that lead to positive impacts on their mental health and wellbeing.
I also have vast experience in the corporate world, where I spent 4 years managing a 24/7 Care Line for diabetic patients. As a result I have learnt a great deal about diabetes and the emotional effect it has on a person as well as their family.
