People come to me for many different issues. You can see here what issues I work with here. My interests lie in working with people who struggle with self esteem, don't value themselves or feel they are always trying to please others and never have any time for themselves. I love to help people who want to improve their lives but can't see a way forward. I also have a developing interest in trauma work.

My work with children
I was privileged to be the counsellor for students at Darlington College for a period of time where I worked predominantly with issues around low self-esteem and self-confidence, loss/change and transition, as well as early relationship issues and more.
One of the schools I worked in was through the Place2Be, where I received training in a wide variety of play therapy techniques. As well as learning about counselling children, here I also learned that working creatively with adults is wonderful way of allowing them to experience the joy and freedom of expression which can enhance their counselling experience. It's not just children who benefit from the use of sand, clay, paint, games and more! No artistic talent required, just a willingness to play!
