I consider myself to be a grounded, reliable and capable person and I take my commitments seriously and with integrity. My life experiences and training have been wide and varied and I feel this has provided me with a firm, reliable base from which to practice as a counsellor.
This has included over 30 years’ experience working within health services and voluntary organisations which has given me a wide-ranging experience of many issues including dyslexia, suicide, the effects of illness on family life, living with chronic and terminal illness, sudden illness, abortion, infertility, bereavement and sudden death & many other life issues.
I am particularly interested in identity, and the self – who are we, why are we who we are? How this can both block and enable us.
