A Bit About Me

When I was in my thirties I became aware that I was struggling with depression, which I had managed to hide really well. Counselling gave me the opportunity to work through my difficulties and the space to express myself. I had always been interested in counselling and eventually after training and doing a great deal of voluntary work, I made the decision to leave my office job and set up in private practice.

I continue to attend workshops and training in order to continue my own personal and professional development and as a Person Centred Counsellor, my committment to my own personal development is intrinsic in my ability to work effectively and with integrity, as the basis of my work with clients is building a respectful working relationship. I believe each person is unique, as is their experience and\I work with each person at their pace, with whatever they bring to their sessions, exploring thoughts and feelings without judgement, gaining insight and understanding of their process.

I am particularly interested in how the body is affected by trauma and the environment that we live in and how these experiences can present in the form of illness or discomfort in the body and not just in the mind. We are after all connected through our mind and body, feelings and thoughts. Part of my personal development is meditation and I have found that it helps me to be in touch with how I feel in my body in the here and now. Practising meditation helps me to deal with every day life and the stresses that I sometimes face as a human being. Mindfulness is a form of meditation that originates from Buddhism. It has become very popular in the UK over the last couple of years. Mindfulness is paying attention to whatever is present for you in the moment with awareness and intention.
