About me

My professional training and life experience support my interest in generalised anxiety disorder, depression, trauma and loss. I have worked as a counsellor in the NHS, Voluntary Sectors, Sixth Form College and Cruse Bereavement care, as well as my Private Practice beside Richmond Bridge.

During the counselling sessions you will be free to examine aspects of your life, thoughts and emotions, talking about them openly in a way that is rarely possible with colleagues, friends or family. Bottled up feelings such as anger, grief and embarrassment can become very intense and counselling offers an opportunity to explore them, with the possibility of making them easier to understand and process.

By listening attentively and patiently, without judging you in any way, I begin to perceive your difficulties from your point of view, helping you to see things more clearly and opening the pathway to reduce confusion. You can find new ways of managing a recurring problem and develop your life-style and behaviour.


What can you expect from me?
Making the first appointment is an opportunity for you to see my practice and discuss whether I can help you. If you decide to go ahead, we will contract to meet on a regular basis, usually weekly, for a set fee, and continue until you feel ready to end, with regular reviews to check we are on track.

Acceptance and respect are essentials. As our relationship develops so too does the trust between us, enabling you to challenge your beliefs and behaviours, which you may not have considered or been able to face before. By helping you to clarify the areas where it would be possible to initiate some change, you can move towards the options available and decide on the best way forward.
