I was a listening volunteer for Walsall Samaritans for ten years from 1996 to 2006.
Following my qualification as a NLP Practitioner in 2007, a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2008, and a BACP Registered Counsellor in 2016 (Registered Number : 707090) I have been successfully committed to helping clients to achieve the positive changes and potential they desire as swiftly and effectively as possible.
Whist studying for my Diploma in Counselling in 2012 I had a student placements at Walsall Bereavement Support Service and St Giles Hospice in Whittington near Lichfield and I have continued as a volunteer counsellor with Walsall Bereavement Support Service ever since.
In 2018 I left St Giles and joined John Taylor Hospice based in Erdington as a volunteer bereavement counsellor
Areas of Specialism
As a Person-Centred therapist I listen in such a way that is non-judgemental; I do not give you advice or tell you what to do but try to help you reach your own answers, outcomes and decisions. Every individual has an innate capability to realise their full potential. Counselling can provide the environment whereby you can connect with your own inner resources and develop the capacity to reflect upon and make your own choices in life, enabling you to overcome blocks to achieving health and well-being.
