About me

As a counsellor I work with people from many different backgrounds, who, for a variety of reasons, are feeling troubled. Most of us will have difficult times in our lives, and we can often feel hesitant about asking for help. While it is not easy to open up about difficult or distressing emotions or events, sharing your experience can help you feel less alone with your problems, and more hopeful that things could get better.

I offer a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore whatever might be troubling you. Your experience will be valued and respected within a collaborative process which helps you to understand difficult or negative thoughts and feelings. Improving awareness and perspective about yourself and your situation, may help you to identify and strengthen your own resources to handle what is going on, both now and in the future. Deciding to see a counsellor could be a positive first step towards addressing whatever is worrying or distressing you.

My counselling approach is humanistic and integrative. Being trained in Gestalt, Existential and Person-Centred counselling means that I adapt my approach to suit your specific needs. I offer both short-term and longer-term counselling.

I welcome people for whoever they are, respecting them as individuals irrespective of background, ethnic origin, religious beliefs, gender or sexual orientation.

I work within easy reach of Maidenhead, Windsor, Eton, Slough, Farnham Common, Cookham and Beaconsfield.
