I am an experienced counsellor and supervisor of over twenty years, and have a great deal of experience working within a variety of settings. I have worked in GP Surgeries, mental Health centres and drug and alcohol settings. I have a private practice at home and work evenings and daytimes.
I am committed to working with people in a way which is suitable to them. I believe that sometimes in our life things happen which can feel overwhelming. These are the times when it is often helpful to talk to someone who can be supportive. I believe that at times we can all lose sight of our inner resources and need time to work things through and get back on track.
I can offer a safe place in which you can explore what is going on in your life and how you feel about it. It is important to work with the whole person and understand the links between the mind body and spirit, so that we can work towards gaining a balance.
