About Christine

I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor in Private Practice that will work with you integratively.  I am currently based in Northampton town centre and Olney, Buckinghamshire. I started on my counselling path in 2005 and realised that this was what I wanted to do; help and support people. On this journey, I have had the privilege of supporting clients who have overcome difficult life events and by working together it has enabled them to move forward in their lives. Making a decision to have counselling is the first step for positive change; and yes it might feel scary.  Working in a safe space and not feeling judged, will allow you to understand your own feelings and emotions and will enable you to make choices for you and your future.

I have previously gained a vast amount of work experience at the Rape Crisis Centre in Northampton in the capacity as a volunteer during my placement and employed in the role as a volunteer co-ordinator/Counsellor.  I supported men and women who experienced sexual assault or historic Child Abuse; it was challenging work, yet I was very honoured to be with them on this difficult journey.  To see men and women finally see themselves as survivors and not victims, was very humbling.

I have also supported clients therapeutically at a Mental Health Charity in Milton Keynes. Presenting issues varied, from abuse, anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement, relationship break downs, self-harm and many other emotional impacting experiences that life throws at us.
