I am an Integrative Counsellor with a background in pastoral care, having worked in secondary school education for 16 years. I am passionate about supporting young people to overcome struggles with their mental health. I started my career as a Youth Worker which then led to working in schools as a Learning Mentor/Pastoral Manager and ultimately to the path of becoming a Counsellor. I love my job and feel I have definitely found my niche in life!
I use a person-centred approach to counselling as I believe this helps build a positive therapeutic partnership and allows you, the client, to have autonomy over your journey within the counselling process. I do use elements from other approaches such as cognitive behaviour therapy, sand story therapy and psychoeducation. This allows you, the client, to get the most out of your sessions as I integrate different therapeutic tools and tailor the sessions to your needs as much as I can..
If you would like to talk to someone about your feelings, discuss your problems and find your own way forward without the worry of being judged. Counselling could be for you!
