About me

I am an integrative counsellor & psychotherapist with nearly thirty years experience in a wide variety of settings. I offer both short term and open ended one-to-one work.

I am based in Ledbury and can also use Skype. I am easily accessible from Gloucester, Hereford, Malvern and Ross.

I work with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, bereavement and loss, issues of sexuality, relationship problems and more.

Counselling/Psychotherapy - How I will work with you

We would start by exploring what has prompted you to come for therapy at this time, and what you hope to gain from therapy. We would then decide together whether short or longer term work may be needed. We would regularly review our work together and whether you were getting what you needed. Sessions last 50 minutes.

If you/we decided you wanted longer term work or to work in an open-ended way which would allow you to work at your own pace, as well as exploring your current concerns, we would also explore how your past experiences and relationships may be influencing your behavior now- working with the unconscious and using our relationship to inform our exploration.

My counselling/psychotherapy approach is an integration of the person-centred, psychodynamic and psychosynthesis models.

I abide by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework
