About me

I am a qualified, accredited counsellor offering one to one confidential counselling.

I am trained in several psychological therapies which I use in an integrative way to best suit your individual needs.

If you are having a tough time, struggling to resolve issues which are hindering you, or want to make changes and fulfil your potential, please contact me for a free introductory half hour session.

I am experienced at helping with:

  • low self-esteem and self-confidence
  • depression and anxiety
  • difficulty in relationships including family conflict
  • traumatic life experiences including illness, bereavement and loss
  • being stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour or addiction            

I practice from my consulting room in Avening, Gloucestershire (near Tetbury, Stroud, Cirencester and Nailsworth) and provide a non-judgemental, supportive space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.

If you think you are interested in counselling, I am happy to arrange a consultation session - at no obligation - to discuss what you would like to achieve.  If you feel you would like to continue with counselling after this, we can agree what is most appropriate for you.

I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to their code of practice and ethics.

Training, qualifications & experience

Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling - UWE (University of the West of England) BACP Accredited.  I also have a CPCAB Certificate in Counselling from SGS (South Gloucestershire College), a Certificate in Psychometric Assessments (Talent Q) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).

I have also undertaken specific training in:

  • Family Liaison
  • Children and Family Safeguarding
  • Maternal Mental Health

In addition to private practice, I am a Staff Counsellor within an Occupational Health Team in the NHS, and have previously been a member of the Counselling team at Gloucestershire NHS IAPT Let's Talk Team.
