About

I am a qualified counsellor and teacher, I have studied Counselling and Substance Misuse at FdSc level and have a Diploma in Social Work, as well as having a wide range of work and life experience. My down to earth nature empowers me to be accessible, approachable and non-judgmental which is an essential part of a successful working therapeutic relationship. Aiding people to work through their own life challenges is my absolute passion and driving force behind Brighter Pathways Counselling.
I am an integrative counsellor that has worked in person centered organisations but I have a strong affiliation towards Psychodynamic counselling. I integrate other ways of working such as transactional analysis and Existential thinking. One of my beliefs is that the relationship between counsellor and client is of paramount importance.
I am very existential in my thinking. I believe there are huge benefits in looking at our lifespan as a measure of time in which we exist.
