About Me

My training and personal counselling I have undertaken has helped me to become self aware on some lifes issues that have been thrown my way. I can now implement my qualifications and draw on my own lifes experiences to be fully present and congruent in the counselling room. I believe I relate and communicate with others in a relational, sensitive, empathic and compassionate way.

As well as running my private practice in Cosham and Southsea I am a volunteer at Off The Record, which is a charity run counselling service for 11-25 year olds. I can see myself being at Off The Record for many years to come. This is mainly because I believe it is important to give back and support the younger generation.

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor. I have certificates for:

  • basic counselling skills for level 1,2 and 3
  • Diploma in Gestalt/ Humanistic Counselling

I am fully insured and have monthly supervision to ensure I am working effectively and ethically.

I am always looking for ways to develop myself further by attending counselling courses and workshops:

  • Self Harming
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Safe Guarding Children and Young Adults
  • Drum Workshop
  • CPD on Training
  • Creative work (Sand Tray and 2 Chair Work)
  • Autism Awareness
  • The Tree of Life (narrative therapy)
