I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor, graduating from the University of Nottingham with a BA in Humanistic Counselling Practice.
My passion for counselling is embedded in the belief that the answers we seek are within each one of us. The Counselling relationship offers the space to explore, learn about ourselves and most importantly the opportunity to be heard.
I am a registered member of a professional body, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am committed to working within their ethical framework.
I am also a Registered Nurse and have worked in a number of settings over the last 25 years. I have extensive experience of caring for people who have undergone life changing surgery, and patients with a diagnosis of cancer.
