I have been offering therapeutic services to families in the local Chester area since 2014. I have worked with families to address problems including bereavement and loss, anxiety management, conflict between family members, and the impact of separated parents.
I am a qualified Family Therapist and have been providing psychotherapy services to individuals, couples, and families in the UK for 14 years.
I believe ALL families can achieve the change they want. By using a strengths-based perspective I hope to help families recognise their own skills at problem-solving and finding solutions to their difficulties.
Pursuing family therapy takes courage, but it will help you and your family to replace distress with hope and meaning.
I am reflective warm and compassionate with a mix of experience over 12 years and have met and supported people from a wide range of backgrounds and life circumstances.
My approach to counselling is underpinned by person centred values. I have worked with children, young people and adults in the following settings:- a family therapy clinic in an in-patient setting, primary and secondary schools, GP surgeries, clients own homes and a children's hospice. I have experience in working with couples and families.
I have offered therapeutic services to clients with eating disorders, borderline personality disorder, substance misuse issues, low self esteem, depression, anxiety and lack of confidence. For the last ten years I have specialised in working with clients in the area of bereavement supporting those who have experienced both traumatic and sudden loss and expected loss. I offer a safe, comfortable and non-judgmental environment where you can explore difficult issues.
I have a Graduate Diploma in Counselling, MSc in Counselling Psychology, Intermediate Certificate in Family Therapy and Systemic Practice and a Graduate Diploma in Counselling Supervision. I am an accredited member of the BACP.
