About me

I offer a free initial consultation to enable you to explore whether counselling is what you are looking for. I am a qualified experienced counsellor having worked extensively in occupational health as a staff counsellor, the NHS and my own private practice. I am a staff counsellor for emergency services and provide CID (critical incident de-brief) support.

My theoretical approach is integrative. This includes person centred, cognitive behavioural therapy and brief therapy solution focused, with training in transactional analysis, psychodynamic and family systems.
I am member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and couples. I have 12 years experience working in the Criminal Justice System and have worked in a Rape Crisis Centre.

My specialist areas are relationship issues, loss/bereavement, trauma, sexual abuse/rape (including court process), anger management, workplace stress and bullying in the workplace.
