About Me

I am a fully qualified, accredited counsellor with hundreds of hours of experience working with clients both face to face and online. 

I am fortunate enough to have insight into what it means to have lived a part of your life as a Jehovah's Witness. I also have an appreciation of the effect it can have, both mentally and physically, when a person finds themselves outside of the Jehovah's Witnesses, whether this is through choice or disfellowshipping.

I am proud to be able to help ex Jehovah's Witnesses deal with the psychological impact of their experience with a programme of education through the Recovery Workbook and counselling.

Working with ex-Jehovah's Witnesses

Many ex Jehovah's Witnesses are in dire need of help in the form of counselling. Individuals commonly describe feelings of identity loss, anxiety, guilt, anger, disbelief and even hopelessness.

Unfortunately, ex JW's also realise that what life was like, and how it is now, is something that seems impossible to explain to another person, unless they have some prior experience or knowledge.

This can cause many former Jehovah's Witnesses to avoid going to counselling due to the assumption that they will not be understood, which, in turn, leads to increased anxiety or frustration.

In addition to the counselling service, I am also qualified to offer a structured programme of psychoeducation in the form of a Recovery Workbook to help you make sense of your former life as a Jehovah's Witness, if that is something you feel you struggle with.

Having a greater understanding of the psychological processes you were exposed to and how they can still impact your life now can be of great benefit.
