About me and my practice

I am a professional, qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and Youth and Community Worker who has worked with adults and young people therapeutically for 25 years. I am able to see people face to face (in person) within my counselling Studio in the Staffordshire Moorlands, provide Walk and Talk sessions outdoors, speak by telephone, Video-Chat (ZOOM, SKYPE, WhatsApp) and email. I provide in-person sessions, online and over the phone sessions within a counselling studio based in the Staffordshire Moorlands, as well as providing walk and talk sessions within local parks and green spaces.

Outline of offer and experience

I have been working with young people and adults who are dealing with substance use for 25 years, within a counselling capacity. I believe that finding a balance between who a person is and who a person wants to be is a key goal within counselling. I am interested in helping you connect with your inner knowing of what is right for you and to support and facilitate you in finding a way through your difficulties. Working as a Person Centred counsellor means I strive to actively understand what is going on for you with warmth and compassion. I strive to listen and respond to clients without judgement. I am committed to working with transparency and having an honest, genuine working relationship with my clients.

List of special interests

I have supported clients bringing various life experiences they are struggling with such as Childhood Abuse, Addiction, Bereavement/loss, Trauma, Work-related concerns, Mental-Health issues, Family and Parenting concerns and Relationship issues, Domestic violence, Childhood issues, self-harm and eating distress, and existential thinking.
