What is counselling and how it might help
Having experienced the benefits of personal counselling myself, I now that the most difficult part is deciding which counsellor to work with. Some people have had bad experiences seeing a counsellor in the past, but all counsellors are unique and work in different ways; I believe there is someone to help everyone. As a Person Centred Counsellor I will not judge you or give you homework, but will offer you a safe, confidential space to talk about anything that is causing you concern, worry, anxiety, stress or just keeps you awake at night. I believe that together we can explore your troubles and discover the right choices to lead you to a happier life. Everyone deserves to enjoy life!
I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse and following this taught Veterinary Nursing for 23 years at a local college. Working with students of all ages made me realise that stress and worries interfere with happiness, often leading to low self-esteem, sadness and under achievement.
Who can I help
I believe all people can benefit from talking to a therapist. If your struggling at home with family or relationships, work or college stress, general anxiety, low self-esteem or ‘just not feeling yourself’, I’m confident that talking to me can help you feel different.
I also offer support for pet owners with worries
Being both a Registered Veterinary Nurse and Counsellor also enables me to offer understanding to pet owners that are experiencing worries concerning their beloved companion. I understand that facing decisions such as general anaesthesia, surgical procedures or euthanasia can cause extreme anxiety and pain. Your friends and family may not understand your distress. I can provide a professional empathic space for owners facing painful decisions or offer support after the loss of your pet.
