BA (Hons), MA, MBACP (Accred)
Following a career in Financial Services, I decided to have a change of direction and re-train as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist in 2005. I studied full time for my BA (Hons) in Counselling Studies, gaining a first class honours degree from the University of Leeds in 2008.
In September that year, I began my role at Doncaster Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling Service as Manager & Counsellor. I worked hard to support people to come to terms with rape and abuse issues. Demanding, exacting and very rewarding work, I was privileged to meet and work with some amazing people. As Manager, I developed and promoted the organisation, securing future funding and extending services to younger people and children.
I completed my Masters Degree in Counselling at York St. John University in 2012 and became Accredited as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2014. I further extended my qualifications by gaining the Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision from York St. John University in 2015.
In 2014, I decided that I would like to build and develop my private practice and secured premises at South Parade, Doncaster. It gives me enormous satisfaction to be able to help people untangle the detail of their lives, and build their confidence, resilience and potential.
It is so easy to drift into a never changing pattern of behaviour, which feels safe, but may be unimaginative and does not encourage or help you to achieve all you are capable of. I enjoy helping people to get a new perspective on who they are and make new choices that bring them greater satisfaction in their lives.
It never ceases to amaze me how brave and courageous
people are and how much they achieve without ever
recognising it. Sessions are supportive, positive and enlightening. Quite
regularly they are filled with humour too!
I believe that everyone deserves a chance to achieve the best
that they are capable of, so that they can face the future
with courage and reliance.
