About Me



So how did I become a Counsellor?


When I struggled to cope, I felt alone, as though

I had reached rock bottom and could see no

way out of the dark place I was in.


I had no energy, getting dressed was a huge

achievement, even getting downstairs some

days was difficult for me.


To cope with the simplest of things would send 

my anxiety through the roof. I felt as though I was stuck at the bottom

of a dark well with no way out.


I then received Counselling.

During the sessions I began to learn who I was again, and gained

the courage, and self-esteem to make the changes I needed to function more positively and move forward with my life.


I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, and counselling gave me the resourses

to fight the darkness


 **********************


After having personal experiences of Counselling, realising the benefits and having

such a positive outcome, I decided to retrain as a Counsellor.


I wanted to give the support and help to others as I had received.


During my training I worked as a student Counsellor for

a local Bereavement Charity, in which I worked for 5 years.


In 2016 I started my own private practice, and in 2019 I moved

my Counselling Practice into the heart of Bridgnorth Town.


I have continued with my training in many areas since qualifying, and im always looking

to expand my knowledge so that I may provide a bespoke Counselling service to my clients dependant upon their own individual circumstances and requirements.
