I'm a person-centered counsellor working in private practice based in Leamington Spa. I'm an experienced and fully qualified counsellor who is a registered BACP member. I found my own personal experience of therapy to be life changing, which led me to want help others.
In my late thirties, I started to notice my low mood and feelings of irritability were very present. On paper you could say I had ticked all the boxes, but there was something underlying, my inner-self was giving me a message. I started therapy and was lucky to connect with my therapist. For the first time in my life I felt able to trust someone with my light and dark parts of life, I was able to remove my mask and show all of me.
This changed my life.
Telephone and Online
Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, I am now offering telephone or online counselling in Warwickshire.
Telephone counselling, we have a phone call therapy session at a pre-booked time. We can discuss how this works in our initial session together.
Online counselling uses Zoom. This will allow us to see each other face to face using a device, such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Confidentiality & Data protection
I believe for a client to benefit from meeting with me, that you need to feel safe and trust that what you share in private will be respected. In usual situations, our conversations will remain strictly confidential; however, there are exceptions as follows:
a) As part of my professional practice, I participate in regular supervision which provides an opportunity for case discussions to safeguard the well-being of us both. In these conversations with my supervisor, I do not use your name and will respect your confidentiality.
b) If I had concerns that you (or another person) were 'at risk' of harm or danger, then I may feel professionally obliged to inform a relevant person or organisation. If possible, I would endeavour to discuss this with you first.
c) Where I am legally required to e.g. child protection and terrorism.
