About me

Life can be unpredictable, challenging, stressful and puzzling at the best of times, and in times of crisis, loss or transition, even more so.  I aim to offer my clients who are experiencing a crisis in their lives the opportunity to find their true and honest voice in the confusion, to clarify their thoughts around what had happened and what might happen in the future, and to support them through the emotional distress that came with the difficulty or loss.  Through the practice of non-judgemental support and listening, combined with gentle exploration of the issue, I have found that clients can achieve a deeper understanding of the various aspects of the crisis and tap into their own resouces and resilience to face what needs to be faced.

Training, qualifications & experience

My counselling qualifications include an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling. I have worked with people experiencing bereavement and addiction as well as carers experiencing the impact of addiction in their lives. I have also worked with teenagers in crisis, women who are new mothers and are struggling with motherhood and possibily post-natal depression, men and women facing divorce, and people dealing with chronic illness.

Member organisations



I have no doubt about the efficacy and benefits of counselling for people in crisis, and I believe that it should be financially accessible to as many people as possible. To that end, my fees are £30 per hour.
