Child and Adult Counsellor
I am a qualified counsellor. I work with adults, children and young people from ages 5 and upwards. When working with a client, I draw on lots of different approaches, rather than a “one size fits all” approach. Sometimes it is hard to even find the words to describe how you feel. Even being in a room can be too much for some people, so it might just feel safer to go for a walk. Other people might want to express themselves through play, for a child, or art, or simply just talking.
You can take your time as we unpack your bag of worries together.
I am a registered counsellor with 14 years experience, and I have over 20 years working with children and families. I have an enhanced DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service), renewed regularly.
I have worked in a variety of settings including Framework supporting adults with mental health issues, Sure Start supporting families, Women’s Aid supporting women experiencing domestic abuse, and Family Care counselling children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse. In addition, I have counselled adults and children with a variety of issues.
I have run the Nottingham Miscarriage Support Group for the last seven years. I started the group after experiencing a number of miscarriages myself, and finding there was no support for women in Nottingham. This has led on to an interest in counselling for men and women affected by miscarriage, infertility and baby loss.
The areas in which I specialise are:
- Child and young person counselling
- Miscarriage, stillbirth, baby loss and infertility counselling
- Adult counselling
- Parent support
- Joint parent and child counselling
Advanced Diploma in Counselling and I counsel both adults and children.
