I'm an experienced counsellor with a wide range of skills and training which allows me to equip you with the tools you need to confidently navigate your life going forward. Over the years I have successfully helped numerous clients explore a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, abuse, trauma and grief.
Whatever your reason for seeking therapy you will find counselling beneficial to your wellbeing. Sessions are private and confidential, giving you the freedom to talk openly about feelings and the different aspects of your life where you'd like to see change. You will receive a warm welcome whatever your race, colour, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
I offer a free 30-minute chat, which can be done face-to-face or online, for you to ask me any questions you have about therapy with me and get a feel for what it would be like to see me regularly.
How I can help you?
Having regular counselling sessions with me will help you gain a new perspective on what's troubling you, we will look at what is working for you right now and what isn't. We will explore your options, whether that be to make changes or learning to accept what you can't change.
It will be an opportunity for you to be listened to without judgement or feeling hurried, if you struggle to communicate what you're feeling I can help by giving you the language to express those feelings.
I work both short and long-term depending on your needs.
Please get in touch with me to arrange a free 30-minute, no-obligation, consultation. This is an opportunity for us to meet and talk about how we can work together to make the changes you want.
I qualified as a Counsellor in 2013 having gained a Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis (TA). A year later I earned a Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People. I established Vyne Counselling in 2015 while also working as a Counsellor in a local Secondary School. As my reputation grew and my client base increased, I decided to focus solely on my business, going self-employed in 2018.
I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means I follow their code of ethics. I hold a current Enhanced DBS certificate, (Disclosure and Barring Service) which means I go through annual checks to make sure I don't have a criminal record and that I am safe to work with young people.
As a Counsellor, it's important to attend regular Supervision and Professional Development Events. That's why I meet with my Supervisor twice a month and attend training to keep my knowledge current.
If you're struggling and need help figuring out why you act or feel the way you do, I have the skills to help you. Together, we can find solutions that give you the option to make the changes you want.
As a parent or carer, it can be really tough to see your child struggling emotionally. While advice from friends and family can be helpful, sometimes you need the support of a professional. With over 20 years of experience working with young people, I know that they can feel overwhelmed by their feelings. Signs like anxiety, self-harm, anger, or being withdrawn are all indications that something is not right.
As a counsellor, I provide a safe space for them to talk without feeling pressured. Every session is tailored to their specific needs. I help them understand that emotions are good and not something to try and get away from, as they serve a purpose. I empower them to have the confidence to speak up when things aren't right and ask for what they need.
If you're interested in learning more, please feel free to email or call me to book a free 30-minute, no-obligation consultation. This is an opportunity to meet me, ask any questions you have, and for your child to get a taste of what it would be like to work with me on a regular basis.
