I am a Person Centred Counsellor. I have a real passion around enabling people to re-connect with them selves; through a variety of methods that make them feel accepted for whom they are. My educational work background has given me a wide range of experiences and this has given me an unique insight into the wider world.
I have done Counselling with MIND, YIS and RVT, as well as Private Practice. Working alongside Challenging Behaviour's will enable a positive supportive growth for many individuals, through the many new opportunities that are on the horizon.
I’m a bilingual Counsellor, I speak Italian, Sicilian and English. I have worked as an interpreter for Milton Keynes community language service since November 2003. My role as an interpreter is not just interpreting and breaking a language barrier between individuals, but requires trust and honesty, and above all respecting peoples autonomy, boundaries and confidentiality.
