About me

Welcome. I appreciate people come to counselling for many different reasons and my aim is to provide a safe, caring, non-judgemental space to explore those together. My own experience of finding huge benefits after a difficult time in my own life led me to train as a Relate Couple counsellor. I worked for Relate Northamptonshire for 12 years before moving to Hampshire to spend more time around family. I am married with 3 adult daughters and 7 grandchildren.

Through my Relate experience, I have worked with a variety of issues including relationship difficulties, affairs, domestic abuse, trauma, loss and bereavement, anxiety and depression. I have also worked in Employment Assist Programmes counselling employees experiencing stress, bullying, facing disciplinary issues, and any other problems causing an individual difficulty in achieving their potential at work.

My initial training course was in psychodynamic and systemic theories but over the years I have gained training in transactional analysis, CBT, solution focused therapy, dissociation and trauma recovery, sexual addiction and mindfulness. My aim is always to work integratively according to the needs of my clients. I work from home in Alton and my hope is that you will find it a comfortable place to explore your difficulties and that together we can find the way ahead that is right for you.
