Biography

I began my counselling career in 2010. After completing a 4 year course, I received a Diploma in Addiction Counselling. I followed this, by returning to college and receiving a BA (Hons) Degree in Advanced Addiction Counselling which helped to further my education.

I have over 8 years experience working in an addiction centre – holding individual therapy sessions and also group therapy sessions with people from the age of 18 years and up.

My approach is mainly person centred. My aim is to create a trusting and empathic relationship with clients, where they can feel accepted, respected and understood. I also like to work with coping and self-worth strategies, so we can understand the client’s journey together.
