About me

I offer confidential Counselling in a comfortable setting within the centre. A discrete setting with parking outside close by. My office is in Bovingdon just off the High St.

I realise making the first step is sometimes the hardest part, I encourage you to try either calling me or email me and I will come back to you as soon as possible, mostly on the same day and usually a session booked in within a week. I feel it's most important we gain a therapeutic relationship and we work together on your issues.

I offer one to one and couples counselling ,CBT and clinical supervision.  I work with relationship issues, depression, bereavement and loss to name a few. My experience also is in addictions and many other issues for example mothers and daughters relationships. I specialise in Loss and bereavement and can help you through such a difficult time.

I work with couples in short term and long term sessions.
I also work with military families offering lower cost Counselling. Discounts for student counsellors and children are available.

I have completed a post graduate course in Psychotherapeutic counselling and also have a post graduate diploma in CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) I am also very interested in family therapy so continuing to learn in that area.

I have evening, weekday and Saturday appointments.
If you have any questions please contact me.
My aim is to put you at ease to make the process less scary, I work creatively especially with young people.
