Welcome to my page. Every one experiences difficulties at some time in their life. What helps most is to be heard by someone in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. Sometimes support from outside your immediate circle is what is needed in managing a troublesome problem.
At other times people feel overwhelmed by the nature of their difficulty and a more specialist approach can be very useful.
People come to counselling prompted by many different issues: for instance, they may experience loss, change or bereavement. They may have low self-esteem or are lacking in self-confidence; relationships may be difficult, and feelings of anxiety, emptiness, anger or low-mood prevent them living in fulfilling ways.
I have considerable experience in psychotherapy and counselling adults and young people and can draw upon different approaches in working. Please see below.
What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
My aims are to help people to understand their situation in a new way and to support them towards feeling differently about things. This can lead to new ways of acting in the world that brings greater satisfaction. Coming to counselling and psychotherapy can be daunting, and I recognise the importance of being respectful and sensitive in this journey.

I have a wide experience as a Counsellor and Therapist in Further Education, secondary schools, and at Leicester Counselling Centre.
Currently, I have a private Practice in Psychotherapy, Counselling and Supervision, and I work as a Counsellor Trainer.
I qualified as a Psychotherapist in 2001, after training at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) for four years, and hold a qualification in Supervision from Sherwood (2004). Earlier training in Guidance and Counselling was completed in 1985.
SPTI is a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), with whom I am registered as a Psychotherapist, and I work within the Code of Ethics of SPTI. I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I receive regular Supervision of my work, the purpose of which is to help me think through issues that arise in the therapy.
