Location

Based in East Leake, near to Loughborough – LE12

I am an Accredited BACP Person-Centred Counsellor and qualified Wellbeing Therapist. I have over 10+ years counselling and therapy experience and I live and work on the edge of East Leake supporting people in various ways.

My job is extremely varied which I enjoy and involves working with a full range of clients: the Met Police, Professionals, Employment Assistant Programme (EAP), BUPA and Private clients using a Person-Centred Solution focused approach as well as individuals wishing to access therapies and the word is spreading…!

My inspiration over the years has come from these leading people:

Carolyn Myss
Donna Eden
Phillip Day

Barbara Wren
Gordon Smith
Carl Roger

Mick Lawrence
Chris Astrill-Smith
Findhorn Foundation

I see life as a journey of discovery and it is the relationship we build with ourselves that matters. Sadly people who over give or ‘people please’ and don’t balance their needs become unstuck. In a nutshell, YOU do matter and we need to nurture this. As a reflective practitioner I often encourage clients to keep a daily log. This powerful exercise is used in part of the A.A. recovery programme and whilst most of my clients aren’t alcoholics this 10/15 minute exercise is very powerful when done daily, it helps focus the mind, reminds us what we have achieved and helps us to set some attainable goals. This task helps to keep us focused and helps identify what it is we are needing and what needs to change. Life is fluid and forward moving, be kind on yourself, no one is perfect.

My work background includes:

Working 10 years in Social Services as a Welfare Rights Officer, Counselling teenagers and young people with Suffolk Young People’s Health Project which included working at Northgate school; with family carers and for a short spell working within IAPT. For 11 years I worked with domestic abuse victims working with women and children and later went to work in two hospices working with patients, carers and bereaved family members whilst managing the counselling team.

I am an Accredited Member of the BACP, a member of the FHT and Kinesiology Association, registered with the ICO, fully insured and Enhanced DBS checked with Bupa Recognition.

What Counselling offers:

Counselling offers a time for you to explore and talk about what is going on for you, in a non-judgemental environment. Counselling provides a safe space to explore and work through issues that may have become overwhelming to manage at a pace that suits you; in a friendly approachable manner where you will feel supported and understood.

Stress, life changes, bereavements, divorce, addictions, trauma, family/relationships, and workplace difficulties can all contribute to low moods, increased anxiety, and loss of energy, focus and motivation. Counselling provides a confidential space and time to talk, where you can begin to feel supported and heard and gain the self-insight you need to help you to move forward. I provide a safe space to explore and work through issues that may have become overwhelming to manage, at a pace that suits you.

What Therapies offers

In addition to this I also provide Wellbeing Therapies as I am a fully qualified Holistic Health Practitioner registered with the FHT, K.A and CNHC.

Kinesiology, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Ear Candling, Mentoring, Reiki

In order to stay balanced, our bodies need a healthy work/life balance, healthy nutrition and exercise.

We need to attend to our physical well-being at all levels.

I use various approaches: kinesiology muscle testing, talking therapies, nutritional support and relaxation

techniques which are very effective in helping to restore balance. Talking therapies, Tapping, Emotional Stress Release (ESR) or Psychological Reversal techniques work wonders in unblocking emotions and negative thinking.
