I am an experienced counsellor and member of the LGBTQ community. Before starting my own counselling practice, I was part of the counselling team at The Rainbow Project. I supported LGBTQ people and those who are questioning with issues around sexuality or gender, often including feelings of shame, depression and anxiety, and any other issues that were having a negative impact on life.
Working with people over the years, I know that LGBTQ people often have negative experiences trying to access help for their mental health. With this in mind I set up Creighton Counselling NI with a focus on providing safe, inclusive, accepting and LGBTQ knowledgeable counselling.
Alongside my work as a counsellor, I am also a lecturer in Counselling.
Outside this work, I am an allotment owner and an artist. I put as much value on gaining insight into human nature and what I can learn from artists, authors and songwriters as I do from learning counselling theory.
