What I Do

Counselling for caregivers

I am a counsellor offering high quality, specialised counselling to anyone who has found themselves as a Carer, Caregiver of just feel like they are in a caring role. This may be for a spouse, parent, relative or friend.

Counselling for people living with a diagnosis of dementia

I offer counselling to people living with a dementia diagnosis, those going through the diagnosis process
or anyone worried about what the changes they are noticing might be. This can be a very difficult time and having someone to talk to who understands the situation can be really helpful.
I have a wealth of experience in supporting people who have been diagnosed with dementia including
rarer types of dementia.
Adapting the way counselling takes place can be invaluable in this situation, so please contact me to
discuss your requirements in more detail.

Counselling for anyone in receipt of care

In addition to counselling Carers, I also understand how difficult it can be for people being cared for.

With many years of experience supporting people living with dementia, physical and learning disabilities and those living with autism, I feel I am well placed to offer counselling to anyone finding their emotional needs are not being met.

Online and telephone counselling can be an invaluable way for people who find leaving the house or travelling difficult, to receive counselling support if face to face counselling is not possible.

Bereavement counselling

Alongside my specialist work, I offer counselling to people experiencing other life challenges, such as bereavement and grief. I have been a Bereavement Volunteer for the charity Cruse Bereavement Support for several years and this experience has been invaluable to my counselling work.

Anxiety and Stress counselling

I also offer counselling to people experiencing anxiety and stress in their everyday life.

The type of counselling I offer is called Person-Centred. I will listen without judgment and acknowledge your experience without moving the conversation in another direction. 

I am there to encourage and support you and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with your process of self-discovery.

I have experienced counselling myself and it really is a way to feel truly heard and empowered.

I believe counselling is...

a really helpful way for people in a caregiving role to share their experiences without feeling guilty.
