Private and Confidential
This private and confidential service is based in Preston, Lancashire.
I am dedicated to your health with a positive attitude. I believe everyone has potential to grow and self-help. My approach to any physical, mental and emotional issues is about acknowledgement and working with you at your pace as well as seeing you as an individual. You will leave with a better understanding of your well-being, your issues addressed and a achievable plan to get you on the road to better health and happier life.
I am bilingual and have a special interest in cross-cultural differences, psychosexual issues, sexual addictions (out of control behaviours) and abuse. I have 18 years experience of working with individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds in private practice, for National Health Service and in the voluntary sector. I am a qualified Mental Health Practitioner, a qualified Person Centred Counsellor and a Sex Therapist on post-graduate training .
For 12 years, I have worked for the NHS as a specialist counsellor supporting patients (and their family) who have chronic conditions and disabilities. I am also an experienced telephone counsellor who appreciates the benefits as well as limitations when offering telephone counselling.
As a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy (COSRT), I follow the ethical framework and code of practice that are set out by both BACP and COSRT.
All my counselling work is supervised as according to BACP and COSRT.
Some areas of my work includes anger management, dealing with anxiety, couple counselling, coping with depression, working with bad news, low confidence and self-esteem, exploring sexual identity, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, sexual additions (including internet sex and pornography), providing sexual & relationship counselling and working with other sexual disorders.
As a qualified and registered interpreter on the National Register, I have excellent insight and indepth experience in providing counselling with individuals whose first language is not English.
My own personal backgrounds, cultural and religious awareness have further enhanced my understanding and skills when working with clients from diverse communities.
