Enlighten Counselling Service is my private practice based in Aldershot, Hampshire where I work as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist.

I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) including the BACP voluntary register. Thus I work within the guidelines of the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and attend supervision in line with the requirement of the guidance. 

I have worked as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist for many years with a wide and varied client base from adults of all ages to young children 5 upwards to adolescents

My work with young people originally began many years ago working for a local charity as a young person mentor. Furthermore I have had over 10 years of experience working for a Rape and Sexual abuse centre. I offered support to the survivors and the families of rape and sexual abuse whether in the present or historic. Some of the most important things for all survivors is being heard and being believed.

My integrative training allows me to draw from four counselling theories person centred, psychodynamic, existential and CBT this enables me to tailor my work to your specific needs whilst offering you complete autonomy in the counselling process.

In addition to my private practice, I work at a sixth form college as a senior counsellor to the students aged 16 – 19yrs of age and also work as a CPD Co-Ordinator to my fellow counsellors at the college. As a result of my years of working at the college as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist with adolescents, I have managed to gain a vast knowledge and skill set at working with this age group in the counselling room.
