About me

I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor offering session during the day and evening in my private practice beside Richmond Bridge.

My Humanistic training and life experience support my special interests in relationship issues, loss and trauma. I have worked as a counsellor in NHS GP Surgeries, Sixth Form College, Mental Health setting and Cruse Bereavement care.

If you feel ready for some self-improvement and would like to learn how to change your life-style and behaviour, or find new ways of coping with a recurring problem, then we can work together. By asking questions and listening attentively and patiently, without judging you in any way, I begin to perceive your difficulties from your point of view, help you to see things more clearly and open the pathway to reduce confusion.

During the counselling sessions you will be free to examine aspects of your life, thoughts and emotions, talking about them openly in a way that is rarely possible with colleagues, friends or family. Bottled up feelings such as anxiety, anger, grief and embarrassment can become very intense and counselling offers an opportunity to explore them, with the possibility of making them easier to understand and process.

What can you expect from me?
Making the first appointment is an opportunity for you to find out more about my practice and discuss whether I can help you. If you decide to go ahead, we will contract to meet on a regular basis, usually weekly, for a set fee, and continue until you feel ready to end, with regular reviews to check we are on track.

Acceptance and respect are essentials. As our relationship develops so too does the trust between us, enabling you to challenge your beliefs and behaviours, which you may not have considered or been able to face before. By helping you to clarify the areas where it would be possible to initiate some change, you can move towards the options available and decide on the best way forward.
