As a qualified, experienced counsellor and integrative psychotherapist, I can offer you a professional and supportive environment where you can explore your problems and difficulties.
My practice is based upon my belief that each person is a unique individual and in therapy no "one size fits all". I therefore use an integrative approach drawing on many different theoretical models according to each individual's needs. I believe that by developing a deeper understanding of ourselves it is possible to make changes in our lives. Talking to a counsellor or psychotherapist can provide a unique opportunity to explore, gain understanding and make these significant, long lasting changes.
I am an experienced counsellor having worked in Portsmouth, Petersfield and Waterlooville for several years. I believe I am approachable and am deeply committed to my work, providing a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental environment.
I offer short term counselling as well as providing longer term psychotherapy and as such I work with individuals either for an agreed time period or on an open-ended basis.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a qualified counsellor with extensive experience, I have my own private practice where I see clients for both short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy.
In the past I have worked in the NHS offering short term counselling in GPs surgeries.
For over 8 years I offered long term psychotherapy in a specialist agency working with clients who have experienced sexual trauma.
My qualifications include:-
MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy
BSc (Hons) Psychology
Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy
Diploma in Humanistic Counselling
I place great importance in furthering my own knowledge in order to better help my clients. To this end I undertake continuing professional development.

I allow an hour for an initial session, for which I still charge £50. There is no obligation to make any further commitment at the end of this initial session. You may wish to book another session or take time to reflect on your decision.
Sometimes I am able to offer therapy for a concessionary fee for those on a very low income
If you would like to explore the possibility of working with me or have any questions, please contact me to discuss your needs. If I am unable to speak to you immediately, I will endeavour to return your call within one working day.
My practice is in Drayton, within easy reach of Portsmouth, Chichester, Waterlooville, Fareham and Petersfield .
