About me

I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor and I offer individual face-to-face counselling.

I work with adults who are struggling with life issues and want an empathic therapist to help them to get in touch with underlying emotions in order to grow in self-awareness and self-acceptance.  These are some of the clients and situations I work with:

  • adults who experience depression and low self-esteem, difficulties in coping with life, anxiety and a sense of failure, hurt and anger from past losses and disappointments
  • adults who have experienced childhood abuse, neglect or trauma, to help them to process their experiences in later life so that they can reach a place of acceptance and resolution and move on into a more integrated and fulfilling life
  • adults experiencing abusive relationships who want help in becoming strong enough to leave
  • women who have a low opinion of themselves and find that life for a woman in the UK is increasingly complicated, confusing and difficult
  • women in middle age or older struggling with the 'empty nest' now that their children have all left home
  • people who have experienced bereavement or other losses such as separation and divorce, betrayal and abandonment, relationship breakdown, the loss of a child, abortion or miscarriage, redundancy, the loss of a job or career
  • adults whose relationship with one or both parents, past or present, causes them conflict and distress

What you can expect from me:

  • Someone who is genuinely interested in you and your life
  • Acceptance, respect, active listening, encouragement, new perspectives
  • Space and time with clear boundaries within which the 'real you' can emerge

I have a relational style and I feel that the counselling relationship itself is very significant in moving things forward and promoting healing and lasting change.

I was trained in an integrative person-centred approach and I sometimes use creative methods in my work, borrowing concepts and strategies from other approaches such as inner child therapy and transactional analysis.

I also offer individual supervision for counsellors. This can be either face-to-face or via Skype. See my Supervision profile for more details.
