I have a passion for counselling and 10 years of experience helping clients deal with the trials and tribulations that life throws at them. As well as a warm and friendly personality I have widespread experience working with clients suffering from issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Addiction, OCD and BPD. No problem is too small to bring to counselling, we all need that helping hand from time to time. I am particularly experienced in helping those with bereavement and addiction issues.
To qualify as a senior therapist within Mind Sense Therapy the therapist needs to have undertaken in excess of 5,000 client hours, they must have maintained their membership in a governing body and undertaken continual professional development. A senior therapist may specialise in a specific area working with a single therapeutic approach, equally, they may have broadened their focus to encompass different therapeutic approaches and working with a wider client base e.g. couples, supervision.
I work at Mind Sense Therapy in Rochdale as a Senior Counsellor/Psychotherapist due to my experience. I’ve also worked as a Counselling Tutor and a lead therapist in Blackburn.
I deliver professional and ethical counselling using Person Centred, Transactional Analysis and the Gesthalt Models of counselling to suit your individual requirements. Clients come for sessions with me weekly, alternate, weeks.
