About me

 
My background
 

I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor with a focus on relational dynamics. 

 

I began my counselling training after having worked within the fields of education, working with children and adults with learning disabilities, family support work, as well as sexual health and relationship education. 

 

Within my counselling experience I have worked with a wide range of client groups, including further and higher education settings. I retain a passion for working with people on the 'edges', and am particularly interested in working in the area of talking therapies for people with learning disabilities. 

 

I am an assistant tutor and examiner at the Metanoia Institute on the Humanistic Counselling course, and have an interest in group and training work.

 

I bring warmth, energy, and openness to my counselling work.
