I am really passionate about Counselling & Psychotherapy because I know it works.

What experience do I have as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist?
I began my training in 1998 and have worked within the voluntary sector to begin with, then within the NHS as a Staff Counsellor at Airedale Hospital in West Yorkshire helping NHS staff members resolve their difficulties within 6 sessions - I also worked at Lynfield Mount Hospital as an Adult Mental Health Therapist, facilitating groups to help people who had a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. I helped them understand their behaviour and helped them learn coping strategies.
I have been running my own private practice as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist for 12 years, since 2006. In this time I have helped people of all ages and from all walks of life with many different emotional difficulties.
This varied work experience has taught me many skills, which I bring into the work I do in the here and now.
