I am a qualified counsellor who believes in providing a warm, non-judgemental and secure environment in which a trusting relationship between client and counsellor can be built. Together we will identify your needs and work towards finding positive solutions.
It is important to find the right counsellor; I therefore offer a free initial consultation to enable you to assess whether you feel we could work together and whether my approach is suitable for you.
I attend regular supervision sessions in order that I adhere to good practice and I work to the Ethical code of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.)
If you would like any further information or wish to arrange an initial session please feel free to contact me via phone or email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I run my own private counselling practice alongside working with an agency providing therapy for carers. I have also had experience in a college counselling setting as well as for a charity supporting those affected by sight loss. My client work has covered a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, anger, relationship difficulties and low self esteem.
I have a foundation degree in Humanistic counselling based on Transactional Analysis (Distinction) and I attend regular training workshops and courses as part of my continued professional development.
I am also the lead tutor for the level 2 and 3 Counselling Skills courses at a college in Winchester. As part of this role I co-ordinate the courses, provide student support as well as teach counselling skills to those that want to enhance their current profession and those that want to train to become qualified counsellors.

Each counselling session is 50 minutes long at a cost of £40. Sessions are mutually arranged on a weekly basis.
I offer a free initial session of 30 minutes. This is so that we can meet, find out a little about each other and decide if we would like to work together
