About me

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and work with individuals and couples. Counselling is about looking at oneself from a new perspective. Exploring your feelings and behaviour with the help and impartiality of a professional counsellor can enable you to make sense of issues and problems which may feel unbearable and often paralysing. By understanding yourself better, you can begin to move forward in life.

I offer an initial assessment session where we can talk about why you feel you may like some counselling, and decide whether working together may be helpful to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I began my training by gaining a Certificate in Counselling Skills and Attitudes from the Westminster Pastoral Foundation in London. I qualified as a psychodynamic counsellor in 1998 from the Manor House Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy, London, a BACP accredited course. 

I worked in a GP surgery for three years and then as a student counsellor at the University of North London followed by the University of Winchester. I have worked at Compass Counselling in Lymington for the last six years. I now also have a private practice from home in North Dorset.
