As a busy working mum I understand the pressures and how hard it can be dealing with the stress that life can throw at us. If combined with this we are struggling emotionally it can be hard to know where to turn but this is where counselling can help.
I will provide you with a safe, confidential and friendly environment where you will feel comfortable to talk about your emotions and be able to express your thoughts freely.
I will listen without judgement and offer empathy and honesty within the boundaries of an honest and communicative therapeutic relationship.
Over the years I have worked in many different roles but always there has been a caring aspect to my work. Whilst training I worked as a support worker working with people that other agencies had found difficult to reach, helping them to see their potential and believe in their own abilities. I also work with Cheshire Police as part of their team of mentors that provide support throughout schools in Cheshire East. Alongside this I also split my time between working as a school counsellor and providing private therapy to both adults and young people in my private practice.
I hold a Graduate Diploma in Counselling and I have completed courses with many other agencies such as Papyrus, Local Safeguarding Team and I have gained a certificate in understanding autism. I am a qualified Mindfulness and wellbeing coach, I have an enhanced CRB certificate and I am insured.
I also abide by the code of ethics as set out by the BACP,
I understand how scary it can be to take the first step but I promise I will do my best to put you at ease and hopefully build a relationship with you that will enable you to move forward with your life and release whatever is holding you back.
