I am a fully qualified Person Centered Counsellor / Psychotherapist. I studied at the University of Chichester in West Sussex and gained my Counselling Certificate and Diploma. I’m a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and work within their professional framework and guidelines. I’m fully insured to practice and also registered with General Data Protection Regulations body.
Previously I worked in the National Health Service for more than 20 years as a Registered Nurse. During my last 10 years of nursing I worked as a Community Nurse and then gained my Degree in Public Health and worked as a Health Visitor. I have extensive experience of working with adults of all ages and have worked closely with older people. I have also worked with complex families and mothers who experience post natal depression and anxiety. I like to work with the Arts in various ways if this interests you. I have a passion for nature and animals.
I volunteer as a counsellor locally working with a variety of services. This includes working with adults with reduced mobility and those who can’t access conventional counselling, adults who are homeless and have drug and alcohol problems and also with young people aged 13-25.
I absolutely love being a counsellor and working with all kinds of people. I resolutely believe in the counselling process and how it can help us to know ourselves better and make changes and choices.
