I first trained in listening skills at my student Nightline in the late 1990s. After graduation and for the last 20 years I’ve used those invaluable skills working with perpetrators of domestic abuse as a Probation Officer.
Working in Probation has meant offering support to a wide variety of people with many different issues. It has taught me that the better I listen non-judgmentally, understand and empathise, the more that clients feel empowered to make changes.
In 2014 I began training as a counsellor, and I qualified in 2018. I am now a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy with 4 years of experience in counselling clients.
While training to be a counsellor I have had many hours of counselling myself, and I can genuinely say those experiences have been some of the most valuable I have ever had.
I am passionate about counselling and the possibilities it offers for people to change their lives.
Get in touch today and we can discover together how counselling can help you.
