I feel I have the best job in the world, I get to see people turn their lives around, to grow where there wasn't confidence, smiles where there were tears. I see individuals work through their anger and fears, I've helped people visit some painful memories and move on with their lives. Bereaved accepting that their loved ones have passed but to remember the loved one without the pain. I've seen children accept their differences.
Some become so used to living with feeling low and depressed that they often forget how to live and just exist.
If you are facing some tough times please allow me to help you and together we will work slowly at your pace through your troubles until we can see a brighter future for you.
I am a Person centred therapist, means that you will be at the centre of your sessions with me. It is your time, your space and you can use that time how you want. I am trained to listen and be there for you in a non-judgemental way and I will work within the BACP ethical frame work.
In the past I have done a lot of voluntary work. I started with Social Services, I would go and assist a family with their children, one of which had a very rare brain disease. I became personal friends with this family over many years. I would go into their home and play with their daughter so they could give some much needed quality time to their other children. I would sometime be a shoulder to cry on and just be there when they were finding life tough. Having a severely disabled child, can often disable the whole family and I would be there to offer some much needed time to this couple to maybe go out for an evening without having to worry.
I have also worked with victim support in a listening and supporting role. I saw people when they were at their most vulnerable, some were frightened of the outside world and it would be my position to reassure these victims that they would get through this awful time in their lives. Many victims had their lives changed forever by what had happened to them and I would support them until they felt strong enough to face the world alone.
I supported male and female rape victims, domestic abuse, ABH, GBH, burglary, street robbery, neighbour disputes, child sex abuse, bullying and the death of children.
