I am a qualified, female counsellor with a diploma in Transactional Analysis. I work within the UK Association for Transactional Analysis Code of Ethics and Professional Practice Guidelines.
I started my working life in a very different sector and have spent the last 20 years working for a large corporate engineering design company. I sought therapy to resolve a stress related illness and this enabled me to make some significant and positive changes to my life. These changes included a growing interest in the theory and practice of counselling and therapy, which led to my training and qualification.
In addition to running my own therapy practice, I work part-time as a volunteer counsellor for South Lakeland Mind.
I have had therapy throughout the course of my training and I understand that talking about distressing events and very personal situations can be difficult and uncomfortable. We will work at your pace and I hope you will find me approachable and patient.
