About me

Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. My counselling approach is integrative and I am passionate about bringing together different elements of specific therapies. In particular I work with Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, Parts Therapy such as Gestalt & Psychosynthesis as well as Nature Based Therapy.

There are times when everyone feel that they just can’t cope, perhaps going through a difficult life event or being affected by things that have happened in the past. At such times it may be helpful to speak to someone trained to listen within a safe and confidential counselling space. As a counsellor I will help you to explore your difficulties and understand the emotions behind them, as well as support you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself & move forward in the way that is right for you.

My approach: I offer a warm, safe and confidential listening space for you to explore at the right pace and depth for you. My integrative focus bring together different elements of specific therapies. From an integrative perspective there is no single approach that can be applied to each individual / situation. Each person is seen as a whole and in my counselling sessions I draw on a wide range of perspectives to ensure sessions are tailored to individual needs and circumstances.

Ecotherapy: I offer ecotherapy sessions in various landscapes near Frome, in Somerset, where you can explore what you bring to counselling while being held by the surroundings. I support you to explore your experience of interconnectedness, being part of a wider whole and what this means to you.

In ecotherapy it is acknowledged that distress can arise from feelings of concern for the outer world and space is given to exploring your relationship with your community, environment and the earth in relation to how this affects your inner experience.

I offer a free 30 minutes introductory session, which allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what worries you, clarify confidentiality and ask any questions. This also allows me to assess if counselling, ecotherapy or hypnotherapy can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical guidelines.

I hold various qualifications including:

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Facilitation for Life on Earth
  • Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy
  • NLP Master Practitioner
  • BSc Hons degree in Health & Community Studies

I have been working with groups and individuals since the mid 1980s and am passionate about holding a space for people to safely address difficulties, explore themselves, gain greater awareness and access their potential for growth.

I have a background as a social worker where I have experience in both the statutory and voluntary sectors. I have worked within mental health as well as children and families.

I started my private practice in 2002 initially offering a range of body treatments and subsequently trained in Clinical Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy and more recently in Therapeutic Counselling, as I feel that is more aligned with who I am.

It is my own journey of self-exploration that has let me to undertake various professional trainings to be able to support others and I remain committed to my own personal growth as well as my continuous professional development.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including:
life changes
anxiety & depression
relationship diffculties
anger management
low self-esteem
loss
trauma
stress
overwhelm
anything that stops you making the most of your life

In addition & have also trained as a 'facilitator for life on earth', which explored various ways to facilitate our re-connect with nature and our inner transition in relation to this. I offer ecotherapy sessions in various landscapes.

Further information

Ecotherapy:

I offer ecotherapy sessions in various landscapes near Frome, in Somerset, where you can explore what you bring to counselling while being held by the surroundings. I support you to explore your experience of interconnectedness, being part of a wider whole and what this means to you.

In ecotherapy it is acknowledged that distress can arise from feelings of concern for the outer world and space is given to exploring your relationship with your community, environment and the earth in relation to how this affects your inner experience.

In Traditional counselling / psychotherapy the psyche is seen as separate from nature and in ecotherapy there is a focus on healing the human-nature relationship, in part by exploring relationships with the more-than-human world in which we live.

Hypnotherapy:

Hypnosis is a safe natural state of focused awareness and hypnotherapy concentrates on our ability to go inside ourselves for the purpose of deep relaxation and healing.

In a hypnotherapy session I use relaxation and visualisation techniques to help you achieve a state of trance. Trance is a natural state that we go in and out of several times a day. It feels like day-dreaming or that feeling of finding that you have driven or walked somewhere on ‘auto-pilot’. Trance can help to improve our capacity to respond to positive suggestion and to help bring about changes in physical and mental well-being.
