About me

I wonder if you have you ever done something that you wished you hadn’t done or said something that you really didn’t understand why you said it? Do you sometimes repeat the same behaviour over and over again, while not really wanting to? Do you ever have dark thoughts that you don’t understand which you don’t want to have in your head? Sometimes we do, say and think things that we don’t and often can’t understand when thinking through it by ourselves. That’s when counselling can really help.

I can offer you a safe place to talk in confidence, whilst offering you another perceptive on what you have shared. I find that that having a protected space, where you can think out loud, can be the starting point for change. You can know and trust in that whatever you say will be contained within the walls where we meet, that your words will be considered in depth, and your feelings will be cared for and held respectfully. There are no limits placed on what is appropriate to say, so no matter what you need to talk about, it will be safe and acceptable to say out loud.

I have peaceful, private room located in Tivoli, Cheltenham (close to Bath Road) with plenty of street parking available.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a lot of experience in working with people, of any age, who have suffered somehow in childhood. Whether this be a specific traumatic experience, from bereavement to abuse, or something more vague. Sometimes just having a parental figure who just didn't understand you, can have a massive impact on life, or maybe your concerned that your repeating your parents behaviour with your own children and don't understand why.

I also work with children and adolescents, and their families.

I have Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, awarded by WPF and a Foundation Degree in Psychodynamic Counselling and Practice, awarded by UWE. I am currently studying a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Children. I have a certificate in Couples Counselling and in Problem Gambling.

I am a Registrant of the BPC and a member of the BACP.
