About Me

My Background

Having discovered that my passion in life is to help others to come through the struggles that they face, I studied for a counselling degree between 1999 and 2002.  During that time I started my counselling practice.
 
After qualifying I gained experience working as a voluntary counsellor. In 2007 I started running my own counselling practice and now work full-time as a counsellor.
 
I have worked in a number of settings, including Liverpool Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy and as Clinical Manager at Listening Ear counselling service.  These roles have given me a wide range of counselling experience.
