About

I hold the belief in my practice that we all have what we need to overcome our inner struggles, but may need help to access those skills and see connections which were lost of jumbled in a our unconscious, to "untangle the ball of yarn" as it were. Counselling offers the support of an impartial, empathic, congruent, supportive (while gently challenging) ear, without fear of judgment or that what you speak about will be repeated without your knowledge. Your confidentiality is key in the counselling relationship
I’m a Person Centred Counsellor and obtained a Degree in Counselling at Nottingham Uni during which I had 4 years’ experience in schools. I went on to co-run an Art Therapy group with adults during a years’ experience of an Art Psychotherapy MA. I volunteered with YMCA with adolescents/adults, set up my practice and became a certified Trauma Therapist.
I am now under the umbrella of Barry Counselling Service an ethical integrative organisation. It can be daunting finding a counsellor, however, It can also be a liberating journey, so in an initial chat we can briefly discuss what brings you to counselling and you can ask any questions you may have, it’s important to choose the right counsellor for you.
