I see counselling as a transformative journey that can positively change and shape the way you both see and experience yourself and furthermore relate to others. I am an experienced and dedicated counsellor of 11 years' standing and I work with a range of issues and welcome a diversity of clients. We work together so you can find relief from emotional distress, build self-awareness and access inner resources with the ultimate aim of improving your overall quality of life . The counselling process is a rich opportunity to constructively evolve and increase your personal choice and freedom. It promotes fresh insights about yourself, the people and the circumstances of your life, thereby offering you a pathway to nourishing experiences both in and outside the counselling roorm. Over the years I have practised as a counsellor I have consistently established supportive and collaborative therapeutic relationships with a diverse range of individuals, each with their unique story characterised by their particular circumstances and challenges.

EXPERIENCE: I worked as a volunteer counsellor for children and young people aged 11-18 at a Cambridgeshire secondary school between 2012 and 2016. I counselled many adults between May 2015 and and 2019 for a Cambridgeshire based organisation named Sky Blue. I worked as a voluntary counsellor for adults between November 2018 and September 2019 for the mental health charity Mind Cambridgeshire Peterborough and South Lincolnshire.
