About me

I am a BACP registered integrative counsellor and a qualified mindfulness teacher. My post graduate training was at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University, and with the University of Massachusetts Centre for Mindfulness. I am currently doing a Post Graduate Certificate in supervision at the Centre for Supervision and Team Development, Bath.

I see individual clients for counselling and I integrate various therapeutic approaches to suit the individual needs of my clients. I focus mainly on the present moment whilst keeping my client's therapeutic goals in mind and addressing any material arising from their past as necessary. I have over 30 years of experience working and teaching in the creative arts.

Some benefits of counselling include greater self-awareness and understanding, developing better coping strategies, relief from anxiety and depression, release from the past, greater intimacy and openess in relationships, improved self-acceptance, relief from phobias and panic attacks, managing pain, better overall health and an increased sense of freedom and happiness.

I teach 8-week mindfulness courses to groups of up to 30 students and I also teach mindfulness to individual clients on a 1-to-1basis.

I am currently studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision and offer individual and group supervision to a range of therapists, healthcare workers and organisations.

I provide a free initial half hour assessment and can accommodate weekend and evening appointments. Contact me to discuss how counselling might be helpful for you.
