I am fully qualified with an FdSc in Humanistic Counselling from Greenwich University
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), whose ethical framework I believe in and adhere to.
I have experience in long and short-term counselling and psychotherapy, with adults and adolescents (which I consider to be the 12-24 age range).
Adolescent issues: peer-pressure, self-harm, anxiety, depression, family/divorce issues, bereavement, identity, relationships, sexuality, low-self esteem, panic attacks, bullying, special needs issues (ADHD, Dyslexia, ASD)
Adult issues: anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low-self esteem, relationship issues, personal development, work stress, abuse and trauma, bereavement and illness.
With a few rare exceptions, which I would discuss with you in the first session, everything you say in the counselling room is confidential and I am professionally bound to uphold this.
My aim is to see things from your perspective as far as possible – to step into your world and view it alongside you. This enables me to empathise with where you find yourself.
I work from a belief that people are unique and valuable and that even if we hold different personal beliefs and opinions, this does not prevent me from offering a non-judgmental space within which to explore your thoughts, experiences and feelings.
