About me

I am a person centred counsellor working from home in the Vale of Belvoir. I have a comfortable and dedicated room for counselling with ensuite facilities. My room is on the ground floor and has wheelchair access. I am also able to travel and visit you at home for a small additional fee to cover my petrol costs.

I am available for hour long sessions in the evenings and at weekends. I work with children, young people, adults, couples and groups. I am able to offer a limited number of concessionary rates to counselling students and those on low incomes.

I am registered with the BACP and work within their professional and ethical guidelines. I am experienced in a range of issues.

Please telephone or email to discuss further, or to arrange a free, no obligation, 30 minute meeting.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified nurse with over 30 years experience of working in the NHS. I commenced training in counselling in 2005, and I currently combine working as a specialist nurse with a private counselling practice.

I have a first class honours degree in Humanistic Counselling and a distinction at Masters level in Trauma Studies, both from the University of Nottingham. I have attended further postgraduate training in working with children and adolescents, working creatively with clients, gestalt therapy, working with anxiety and depression, working with loss and grief, eating disorders, childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, child protection, sexual violence and rape, sexuality, mindfulness and focusing.

I volunteered for 4 years for ISAS (Incest and Sexual Abuse Survivors) and I was a volunteer counsellor and board member for Counselling Xtra in Nottingham for 3 years. I have worked as a consultant in mediation with a local company. I am trained and experienced in group therapy.

I have a special interest in working with individuals and couples experiencing trauma from miscarriage and stillbirth.
