About me

I counsel children, adolescents and adults. I am an Integrative Counsellor which means that I am able to use the approach best suited to your individual needs and unique experiences. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their ethical framework and their code of conduct.

I offer you a safe, trusting and confidential space with the aim of establishing a professional and therapeutic client-counsellor relationship based on respect and acceptance. In the time we have together I will listen to you and provide you with a holding environment for you to explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviour.
As you explore you will gain a deep understanding and an insight which will give you choices, enable you to feel empowered and enhance your self-development. I will facilitate the evolving counselling process which will be largely led by you.

Counselling is a journey. It is your journey. It does not promise to be easy. You will be trying to make sense of your experiences, unravelling certain areas and freeing yourself so that you feel able to grow and develop.

My work can be assisted by the use of a range of creative materials if this is something that you were interested in and would benefit you. Children and adults both enjoy and value the freedom they feel expressing themselves with the use of these materials.

Please feel free to visit my website www.yourhaven-counselling.co.uk for more information about me and the counselling services I offer.

Training, qualifications & experience

In addition to running my private practice and seeing private clients at home in Wilburton I am employed by Bellerbys College Cambridge as their college counsellor. Bellerbys College is a private international college for students studying for their GCSEs, A-levels and Foundation year. I also work for Centre 33 which is a charity. I am based in their Huntingdon branch and counsel children and young people.

I have worked for JHD Counselling Services for two years as one of their team of counsellors. My work involved counselling university students at some of the Cambridge University colleges and seeing private clients.

I have also worked as a counsellor in primary and secondary schools, run family play therapy sessions, workshops and conducted talks.

As a qualified counsellor I have a Diploma in Counselling and I am a registered member of the BACP presently working towards my accreditation. I also have a Diploma in Working with Depression.

My special interest is in Eating Disorders and I will soon be completing my NCFED Diploma in Practical Skills in Eating Disorders.

Some years back I qualified as a medical doctor and I also have a degree in psychology. I find the knowledge and experience I have received in doing these extremely valuable in offering the best practice for my clients.

I offer an initial assessment for us to meet and discuss what brought you to counselling and the possible hopes and aspirations you have for counselling. It is also an opportunity for us to get to know a little about each other and to find out if we are happy to continue further sessions together. The relationship is crucial and it is important to choose a counsellor whom you can relate to and engage with.


We will review the counselling process at regular intervals and assess how the counselling is going.
