About SK Counselling
Throughout my career, I discovered a genuine and innate passion for nurturing and supporting people through their individual journeys. Our life experiences, whether positive or challenging, enable us to build the foundations in order to create the life we aspire to. I believe that with the right tools, empathetic support and ability to find our inner voice, we can be on the path to a brighter future.
At pivotal times in my own life, I experienced life changing counselling, and thought about training as a Counsellor. Before this, I was a Human Resources Manager for John Lewis for many years where I found a passion for providing advice and counsel to employees struggling with issues such as work related stress. I developed a strong desire to apply these skills in a counselling environment, which encouraged me to take the next steps.
I subsequently embarked on a foundation course whilst still working and realised my passion for this occupation was one that I wished to grow and strengthen in a professional capacity. I therefore began a journey of study over 4 years.
During this time, I felt fortunate to have gained exceptional experience in two counselling placements. At Watford Women’s Centre the work focused on abuse and female empowerment. At North London Hospice, I learned about the impact of grief and loss, and how bereavement is unique to each and every one.
The foundations of my practice are built on empathy, trust and authenticity. I want my clients to have a unique experience, where perhaps for the first time they are heard, and feel understood without judgement.
