About me

I am an experienced Accredited Registered Counsellor who is qualified and able to work with a vast variety of different issues; such as relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and bereavement. I was a Specialist Palliative Care Counsellor and worked within a hospice for 11 years and I am experienced in working with cancer, health issues and loss.

I offer one-to-one counselling sessions with adults and young people. I have a private practice, which I run from my home; this enables me to be able to provide my clients with a flexible, professional, quality counselling experience. My practice is based in a quiet and tranquil setting; it is easy to access and there is ample parking.

I also run a private practice within an independent hospital and am a Consultant Counsellor within the Psychological Medicine Department. I am registered as a Healthcare Provider with many private healthcare insurers.

I am an Affiliated Counsellor with an agency that provides EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) support to individuals in need.

I am also a qualified Accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist and, where appropriate, can use hypnotherapy to underpin my counselling work. I am registered with The General Hypnotherapy Register.

Training, qualifications & experience

Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
Registered MBACP Accredited Counsellor

I have 11 years experience working within a hospice setting delivering pre/post bereavement care to patients and their families facing life-limiting illness. Whilst at the hospice, I was clinical lead for counselling young adults and was a trainer on pre/post bereavement courses. I really enjoy working with young people.

My bereavement training, experience and interest lead me to work alongside a local funeral directors; where I was available to see individuals for counselling when required.

I have had specific sexual abuse training and have worked within an agency providing counselling support to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

I received play therapy training through a nationwide school-based charity and worked with young clients in a primary school. I have also worked with many secondary school aged children, which I particularly enjoyed.

In the past I ran a private counselling practice within a local GPs surgery where I saw clients with a vast variety of different issues such as relationship breakdowns, sexuality, domestic abuse, school bullying, lack of confidence and anxiety. I now run private practices from my home and from a local independent hospital.

I am an Affiliated Counsellor and work with clients through an EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) agency.

Further information

I am a warm and caring person and I passionately believe in the healing power of a genuine, supportive, compassionate counselling relationship.

I am always very happy to receive contact from anybody interested in accessing my service to discuss their individual issues and requirements.
