About Heather

For many years I have helped people with difficulties to change their lives, and have been successful in this. But there came a time when I found myself suffering from reoccurring bouts of depression. Everything felt very black. I realised that it was my turn to seek help. My GP referred me for counselling. Even though  I needed help it still took me some time before I plucked up the courage to knock on the counsellors door. My therapist listened to me in a way I had not been listened to before and I realised that something was happening. My depression was lifting. I understood more about myself and why I felt the way I did. My curosity was sparked. I signed up for a counselling skills course and found I was able to help people in a different way to how I had helped them in the past. I qualified as a Counsellor in 2010. I have worked for Cruse Bereavement Care, and with Bristol Mind, a mental health charity. I have helped many people and have experience of helping people who have a wide range of problems ranging from the pain of bereavement and prebereavement, low self esteem, depression to severe depression and even to those who are suicidal. I have helped clients who have been abused, to others with identity problems. I have my own supervision practice and am a supervisor with Cruse. A supervisor is someone who oversees other counsellors work, they are respected by their peers and is someone who is very experienced in what they do. I have also worked as work coach and I have been successful in helping people who have experienced unemployment through sickness or circumstances into work.

I am an accredited registered member of BACP and abide by their rules. This means that my work is of a high standard and my practice is professionally accountable. For more information see www.bacp.co.uk .
