Variety of support
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist and I trained at the Sherwood Institute for Counselling and Psychotherapists following a long career in law. I have a passion for working with client’s who suffer with trauma, disability and diversity related issues. I work on developing a therapeutic relationship with you where you can feel safe to explore difficult and painful issues in a confidential setting; issues that you may not have been able to disclose to anyone before.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Who I can work with.
I can work with children aged 11+ to individual adults, covering a range of issues:
Areas of counselling I deal with:
Child related issues
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
Passive aggressive behaviour
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
I work from home in Oakham where there is ample on street parking. Whilst the premises are not wheelchair accessible, I have recently had installed handrails to assist with the comfort of clients using the entrance steps, internally it’s all level.
I have an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service Certificate (DBS).
Please note: Client’s names have been changed to protect their identity.
‘Just a note to say thank you for all of your help these last few years – I’m incredibly grateful’
‘I can’t thank you enough for all of your help with the issues I’ve had. Without your patience and your listening skills, I really feel like you heard me and asked me all of the questions that I needed to be asked which resulted in me being able to hear myself for the first time which in turn enabled me to do something about it before it was too late so for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.’
‘Just wanted to say a big Thank You for helping to facilitate me breaking free from some of the past things that I’ve hung onto for years! It feels good!’
