I am a trainee therapist offering low cost counselling to couples. I am currently studying in my second year of an MA in Contemporary Relationship Studies at Doncaster University College. One of the reasons I chose this course was to allow me to work with individuals, couples and families.
I enjoy working with those who are seeking to deepen their understanding of themselves, their lives and their places in the relational systems that they move within.
As life brings us challenges, we may find we need help to get through them. Understanding ourselves, our intimate relationships and broader place in our communities can give us the strength and courage we need to embrace and conquer what lies ahead. I offer a safe place to be heard and to freely explore these challenges, how they affect us and our relationships, helping you to understand and navigate any adaptations that may be needed to affect positive change in your life.
I am an integrative counsellor and am drawn to systemic and psychodynamic therapy but will suggest other appropriate approaches if I think they may be more suitable whilst we work together.
The supportive and non-judgemental space I offer to couples will give you the opportunity to navigate your way through the difficulties you may be facing within your relationship. We will work in a collaborative way to gain an understanding of these challenges, allowing you to attain the positive changes you wish to see in your relationship.
How it all began
I have worked in the wellness industry for nearly twenty years and over that time have used talking therapies to help people get through some of the hardest challenges in their lives.The depths of the informal therapy that I was providing made me realise that I was a good listener and communicator.
When I was faced with the death of my own Mother, I felt inspired to reach out to try to help others. I felt that she granted me the gift of not being afraid to offer support to people in their times of need. This was the catalyst to begin to my counselling journey.
I have previously worked as a counsellor for CRUSE Bereavement Support and currently volunteer for the Sheffield Adult Autism and Neurodevelopmental Service (SAANS).
