A: Parkside House
My working life has taken me down various paths before I qualified as a therapist in 2008. I have counseled for charities, the NHS and privately and have enhanced my experience through regular training to continue my personal development.
I strive to provide a calm and personal space for people to talk about and think through any troubling issues. As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to their code of ethics and show respect, empathy and a non-judgemental attitude to my clients. I have a very down to earth attitude and have worked successfully over the years with a variety of different people.
My counseling beliefs are that the therapeutic relationship is essential in supporting and helping people to move forward and live a calmer life. I strive to create a place in which people will feel supported to explore their thoughts and feelings and to offer comfort through challenging times. Ending a relationship is a life-changing issue which can be challenging and distressing. I can offer a safe confidential space where you will be heard and valued through this process.
I understand that some people have many demanding commitments, which is why I offer day, evening and weekend appointments. I will try and get you an appointment as soon as I can, believing that someone who needs support needs to be heard as soon as possible.
