I was first introduced to counselling after experiencing a number of personal issues.
When I was 21 I moved to a different country, leaving behind all of my friends and family, and quite quickly started to feel out of place and incredibly lonely. After visiting my GP I started seeing a counsellor who helped me to explore my thoughts and feelings and make the changes I needed to, to feel better about my circumstances.
At the time I was amazed at how quickly I was able to change my thought processes and how effective the sessions were. From there I developed a passion for counselling and started training.
Initially I trained with the Open University and gained a BSc in Psychology and Counselling. Then, after returning to the UK, I went on to complete my Level 3 Counselling Skills with York St John’s University and in 2018 Joined Relate UK to complete my Level 4 Relationship Counselling Diploma.
Since then I have continued my professional development with courses on OCD, anger, sex & intimacy, grief, solution focused therapy and online counselling.
However, as a counsellor, the training never stops and I am now working towards a Level 5 Diploma is Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
Over the years I have built skills and experience supporting couples and individuals in many situations, with a range of difficulties.
I truly believe in the effectiveness of counselling and I am passionate about the work I do.
