A little more about me

 

 

I am a wife and mother of a large family.  I have worked over the last 20 years in a number of different areas – for a firm of lawyers, the NHS, in primary schools and a high school and have gained a huge amount of life experience during this time, both within my personal life with my family and through my work.  It was through working in fairly diverse areas that I began to understand how, as humans, we all experience pain in some form – perhaps through mental health issues such as low self esteem, depression,  or situational difficulties, such as difficult relationships, relationship breakdowns, poverty, illness to name just a few examples and the single most important aspect which enables change and deeper understanding is a trusting and supportive relationship.  I decided to train as an integrative counsellor to gain an understanding of various theories which may be applied to my work.    In addition to my private practice, I work as a volunteer counsellor for the charity MTCIC (Mentis Tree Care in the Community) which seeks to help people with a broad range of concerns.
