Hi, my name is Sylvia, I am an experienced counsellor  trained to diploma level and a member of the BACP and the ACC. I work within their ethics and guidelines and receive regular supervision for my work.

I currently work in my own private practice and in the voluntary sector for Liberty Pregnancy Crisis. 

Through this time I have had experience dealing with various issues. These include Relationship Problems, OCD, Bereavement, Loss, Self Harm, Gender/Transgender issues, Addictions, Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Abortion, Low Self Esteem, Confidence, Phobias, Post Natal Depression, Baby Loss, Miscarriage, Infertility, Issues around Abortion.

 

I was drawn into counselling after having issues in my own life and experiencing counselling myself. I realised how desparate and isolated we can feel when going through painful situations. The help I received from my own personal counselling stirred up a passion in me to help others. I decided to leave my area of work and pursue a counselling career thus enabling me to facilitate healing and change in peoples lives.

On a personal level, I am married with 3 adult children and 9 grandchildren. You can imagine our home can be a busy place from time to time. I enjoy family life, dining out and visiting the theatre. In my leisure time I also like to swim, read and spend time with friends.
