About me

Are You In Control of Your Life Or is Something Else In Control of You?

We are all in partnership with life, but sometimes we may not feel as if we are.

Could you benefit from a safe, non-judgmental and confidential place to take some time-out ... to explore your thoughts and feelings and find a way forward, helping you lead a more balanced and meaningful life?  No matter how challenging the circumstances, finding peace can be possible.

I am an experienced, qualified committed Counsellor, Stress Management Practitioner, Eating Disorder Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist based in Lindford, Hampshire.    I offer counselling and hypnotherapy to all surrounding areas of Lindford, including Guildford, Hindhead, Haslemere, Grayshott, Farnham, Bordon, Alton and Petersfield.

I have been working in private practice since 2003 and my approach is to work alongside clients, listening to the issues that they present with, helping clients to develop specific strategies to reduce conflict, ease transitions - providing clients with the tools that will help them to manage their lives and make decisions.  Enabling clients to find their own unique way forward.

I offer short or long term counselling to:  Adolescents, Adults, Individuals and Couples with the aim of enabling clients to enhance their lives, feel empowered and live more fully.

As well as being a counsellor and psychotherapist, I also write and present workshops for schools throughout the Counties on Exam Stress/Anxiety, Stress/Anxiety Management for Teachers, Exam Stress for Parents,  Self-esteem and Confidence, Eating Issues/Body Image, Self Harm, Low Mood and Depression.  For businesses workshops on Stress Management. 

I am extremely passionate about helping people to achieve their full potential in their lives and beat low confidence, low self-esteem, stress and anxiety issues.  

I appreciate how difficult it is for most people to ask for help, but trust me when I say this .... taking that first step is most often the hardest step to take and what follows on from that becomes a way of reclaiming what is rightfully yours ....... Your Life..... Your Journey ..... Your Adventure...
