I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited person-centred counsellor, MBACP (Accred). I work to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I offer a supportive and non-judgemental space to facilitate self-exploration.
I work with empathy, unconditional positive regard and genuineness as the foundation of the therapy - these simple elements can be very powerful in the counselling relationship and support loving, honest and kind self-exploration. The person-centred approach to counselling holds that each individual person is an expert on themselves with innate resources to deal with life, and these can be tapped into by providing the right conditions for personal growth and development. These conditions can be provided through the person-centred counsellor and the therapeutic relationship. I have experienced clients to date responding to therapy when bringing issues such as stress, feeling unfulfilled, anxiety, sexual identity issues, and many other issues.
I grew up in County Cork, Ireland, in a farming community by the Atlantic Ocean and I am the youngest of 7 children. I have lived in France, the USA, and now I live in London in the UK. In the past I have worked in the hospitality industry, construction industry, and also I worked with and studied horses. I have also spent 19 years in the pharmaceutical industry as a clinical project manager and I continue this work on a part-time basis alongside my psychotherapy and counselling work.
