My decision to train as a counsellor & psychotherapist was prompted by my own experience of having counselling & psychotherapy. It gave me the chance to ‘press pause’, reflect and establish meaningful purpose in my life. To feel genuinely ‘heard’ and accepted by another without judgement opened up a space inside me. It allowed my innermost thoughts and feelings to occupy that space. It helped me to ‘make room’ for myself away from the conditions and expectations of other people. It has helped me to find growthful ways of living which are unique to me and to hold healthy boundaries with other people.
I have had counselling with a few different therapists in my life. I understand what it feels like to be sat in the opposite chair. Some of those experiences have transformed my life in a positive way but some were not great. Harmful, unethical counselling can cause great damage. It is so important to make sure that you feel comfortable and safe with your counsellor and that your boundaries are respected.
I currently run Sentio Psychotherapy Practice where I aim to help people gain awareness into their lives and find more growthful ways of living. I hold warmth, empathy and positive regard for everybody I see. I practice in a culturally sensitive, ethical manner with the highest regard for my clients’ wellbeing. I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and hold professional membership with the National Counselling Society as an Accredited Registrant.
I have experience of counselling on a range of issues including grief, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, abuse, trauma, relationship breakdown. I continue to pursue a special clinical interest in narcissistic abuse.
