Deciding to see a counsellor can be a daunting prospect and it’s perfectly natural to be nervous, I know I was. But once you start talking you’ll be amazed how much of a relief it can be to share how you are feeling and what is affecting you currently. It’s really important when choosing a counsellor that you feel comfortable and understood by them.
In my previous life I had an office job, but because of the wonderful counselling and help I received, I decided to train as a counsellor as I felt really strongly about bringing that experience to others. I’m passionate about working with people who are grieving and being there alongside them as they begin to move forward.
There is no better reward for me than seeing the changes taking place in a client and the difference in how they begin to feel about themselves, it’s wonderful.
There may be a time in your life when you
feel stuck. As your counsellor, I will help you uncover the tools inside you which will help you build your life around your grief and loss, so you can start to live life more fully and rediscover real moments of joy again.
It’s not about getting over the loss, but about learning to acknowledge, accept and finding a new way of living with it. Whatever the cause of your grief, be it the loss of a job, a relationship or a bereavement, you can learn to cope with the pain that in time can ease your sadness, help you come to terms with your loss and find new meaning so you can move forward with your life.
I have experience counselling for different agencies in the charity sector. I have been a bereavement counsellor for Cruse, a school counsellor for Place2Be and a volunteer counsellor at Mind in West Kent. I am also currently a counsellor at a local primary school and have my own private practice.
