I’m so excited to have joined Support for Survivors as a volunteer.

I’ve worked with vulnerable adults and families for over 20 years; supporting people is my real passion. I started my career working in a women’s refuge, helping women to overcome their experiences of domestic abuse, and during this time, I started to see the effects that trauma has in our physical, emotional and mental health.

This made me decide to become a counsellor, and it’s been my learning journey ever since, alongside working fulltime.

I’m now taking my master’s degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Derby University. My training concentrates on a ‘humanistic’ approach, looking at our attachments, and using CBT to help alleviate some of the challenges that we may face.

I would like to offer you a free, empathetic and confidential counselling service. You can refer yourself through the organisation. We will then be able to go through everything with you and let you know how it all works.

For now the counselling will be offered online, but hopefully we’ll be able to go back to meeting face to face in the future.
