About Me - Path Finding Therapy - Qualifications & Experience

About Me

Qualifications & Specialisms

I specialise in Bereavement, which is a broad area as bereavement is not only losing someone, it can also be the loss of anything that has affected a person’s life or affected emotions in some way that are difficult to accept. This can lead to difficulties in other areas of our lives; being able to talk it through to try and find another path to go along can possibly help. Counselling can help you to make sense of your experiences and help you to find more manageable ways of coping.  If you feel this resonates with you and would like to have me go along the journey with you, I am here for you.

I have completed further training to assist people who are having relationship problems. I can offer individual or couple counselling in this area.

I am an registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP)

I attend monthly clinical supervision, have professional indemnity insurance, and adhere to the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

About Counselling

Counselling can help by providing you with an opportunity to share your situation with someone who is supportive understanding and who will not judge you.

It is also helpful in discovering more about yourself and the actions of those around you, it helps you to identify your needs and priorities and to set new goals to work towards.

I understand that accessing counselling may feel like a daunting prospect and that you might feel anxious about sharing your personal thoughts and feelings. However I would like to reassure you that I have a friendly warm and approachable personality and that I am skilled in promoting a relaxed and empathetic environment. There are times when we feel overwhelmed. While our minds are preoccupied, dealing with stress, we are unable to think clearly or make good decisions.

Having counselling is your time, your space, no interruptions, no distractions and no pressures. How we live our lives and build relationships is hugely dependent on our past experiences, the difficulties and challenges we have faced.
