I and have been working as a counsellor since 2000. I have my own practice based in North Belfast and offer both short and long term counselling to individual clients and to couples. I have been practicing as a counsellor and Supervisor for 20 years. I have worked for over 30 years in the community/voluntary sector working with individuals, families and groups within communities, and I also have extensive experience within the EAP sector.I provide a safe space where clients can openly talk about the issues that have brought them to counselling. Time that allows them to process their thoughts and feelings and a new way to understand what is going on for them, either individually or as a couple.ÊI also have 15 yearsÕ experience of working within the pregnancy field, crisis and unplanned pregnancy, abortion, birth trauma, post pregnancy related issues, bereavement, PND and PNA.I feel that over the years I have met and worked with so many people that have such a wide variety of life issues to cope with that my experience as a result of being part of their process of understanding themselves has allowed me to journey as a human being as well as a counsellor. I feel that I connect well with clients, respect their knowledge of their own thoughts, feelings and circumstances, and I come open and genuinely to each session. This for me allows a strong, safe and positive working alliance with clients.
