About me

I trained in counselling at the Bath Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy (DipCouns BCPC) and have worked at Winchester University Student Counselling Service and the Dorchester Trust For Counselling & Psychotherapy. I am a Registered member of BACP, my profession’s governing  body. As well as my counselling practice, I have an interest in the environment and natural medicine.

I offer both short-term and long-term counselling to anyone aged 18 or over. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to talk outside your usual circle of family, friends or colleagues. This can give you a chance to say what’s on your mind, express painful feelings or admit to confusing thoughts, helping you to cope with uncomfortable situations and to make positive change. Counselling with me can help you understand your present situation, whatever it may be, explore your past experiences and give voice to your hopes or fears for the future. If you feel that talking about your situation or feelings might help you, I would be pleased to meet you.

I work with an awareness of people’s interconnectedness with nature in all my counselling sessions but I also offer a more focused approach to working with nature through my interest in Eco-psychology. If you feel that you would like to focus on your relationship with the rest of the natural world and how to better connect to and sustain it, then I would be happy to meet with you and begin to explore how you can develop your care for the earth, as well as your own sense of health and well-being.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Foundation Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). I have undertaken further training in Ecopsychology and Nature Based Practice with Failand Training and Re-Vision. I am a Registered Member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have experience of a University Counselling Service and a low-cost Counselling Agency as well as in private practice.
