I am a humanistic counsellor in training at Sheffield College. I have over 10 years’ experience in education and have worked in the UK and abroad with a wide range of young people and adults from a variety of backgrounds. I currently work as Young Person’s LGBTQIA+ Wellbeing Practitioner. In this role, I create safe spaces in schools for young people to discuss identity and challenges that they face. I am looking forward to joining Sheffield Central Counselling as part of my college placement.
I take a humanistic approach to counselling. I will offer a confidential and non-judgmental space for you to speak. I will actively listen, and I will use counsellng skills to help you make sense of your situation. I will check in with you along the way to make sure you feel supported.
In our sessions, I will offer a space for you to speak about anything you wish from low moods to anxiety, to challenges in relationships, bereavement, job loss and so on. I won’t hide behind a façade, but I aim to be real and authentic. I won’t tell you what to do, but I will work alongside you at your pace, allowing a space to build confidence and coping strategies.
Where it all started
Working within wellbeing roles in education, I have received excellent feedback for working sensitively and empathically supporting young people and families. This inspired me to start my training as a counsellor. I have enjoyed working with people from diverse backgrounds. I believe we all have a lot of strength and resilience within ourselves. Sometimes just having a space to speak openly about our feelings without judgement can make a huge difference.
