I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist, providing long term and short term counselling at my practice in Wokingham.
Our first steps for help are often the hardest but counselling can help with difficulties and emotional stress caused by loss, relationship breakdown, work worries and painful life events. Talking with a counsellor can help you to understand how past experiences, and worry about the future or lack of confidence may be affecting your life today. A professional counsellor can help you to reflect on how you are responding to your life events, and help you to explore how you relate more effectively to others and yourself. Counselling provides a unique professional relationship to explore your thoughts and feelings, aiming to help you make your own choices and bring about change.
I worked for many years as Head of Counselling at The Berkshire Counselling Centre which was a charity that provided affordable counselling to clients in the local community.
I am clinical lead and contract manager working in conjunction with Wokingham Borough Council to provide an EAP Counselling program for its employees and carers.
I provide counselling for individuals and couples as well as supervision to students and experienced therapists.
