About me

Who I can work with:

I work with adults, and with young people, both face-to-face and using Skype and Facetime.  I also enjoy working with groups. The approach that I take is to collaborate with you to resolve and feel more positive about what you are dealing with, so that you feel you have choices.

I am a warm, compassionate, patient, empathic person with a sense of humour. Life experience and therapy have helped me to understand myself and to empathise with people in different situations and circumstances.

Sessions are confidential between us.  I do not share anything you have said with family or friends, which means you have the chance to work things out for yourself in your time, with confidence.

I work from Ryde Chiropractic clinic in George Street, and from home in Ventnor. Optional sessions in Newport also available.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Humanistic counselling, at Chichester University.  Importantly for you, I'm an accredited member of NCS (National Counselling Society) and a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I work to the ethical guidelines of both and have full insurance cover. Additionally, I have a diploma in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), which offers techniques helpful in dealing with phobias for example.

I have worked as a counsellor in different settings including Earl Mountbatten Hospice for five years; Southampton University counselling students and staff; ‘No Limits’ in Southampton with young people, and the YMCA on the island with children and young people.

The issues I’ve worked together with people on have included dealing with change and loss; relationships; life transitions; abuse; anxiety; depression; fear; identity; gender identity; trauma; loneliness; power; failures and successes. I work according to what people bring and want to talk about - as well as noticing in a supportive way, what may be being avoided.

Sessions are 50 minutes long, usually weekly, though this depends what works for you.  Short term or longer-term work is optional, and reviewed regularly.   A few sessions can make a big difference in a person's life.

Charges are £42 per session individually booked, with some concessions available according to means and /or sessions booked.

I am happy to talk with you / meet before committing to a session to see if you think we can work together.
