Passionate Counselling Professional
I have come from a professional background and after my own life changing event I sought my own personal journey through therapy, The power this gave me led to my deciding to retrain as a therapist and build Serenity Speaking. I have completed an Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic counselling, The Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) members of the European Association for Counselling and their qualifications are internationally recognised , I also have gained certificate qualification in EMDR Trauma Focused Therapy. (recognised by the NCP) I am a registered member of the NCP , BACP (National Council of Psychotherapy, British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and registered with The ICO ( Information Commissioner's Office).
Very early in my life I recognised the importance and value in talking about your thoughts and feelings.
Life has a way of throwing curve balls at us along the way and sometimes these can be difficult to navigate, possibly leading to anxiety, stress, trauma, depression, illness, family issues and bereavement.
As a trained therapist I can help you to find ways to deal with these emotional times.
I have spent three years volunteering as a Counsellor for Catalyst/Surrey (an alcohol and substance misuse charity). I currently volunteer my time for The Fountain Centre, Guildford (a charity supporting patients and carers affected by cancer), as well as working privately within my own practice, I have experience with a range of issues such as trauma, addiction, self-esteem and depression, anxiety, bereavement etc.
The key to how I work is that it is all led by your needs and set at a pace that is comfortable to you, offering empathy respect and acceptance. I will be by your side throughout your journey.
