Everyone wants to be happy and live well. Its not always that easy, is it? Our lives can throw up all kinds of painful experiences.

Remember, counselling changes lives, not just yours but everyone you come into contact with.

Leicester Private Counselling for Women

This is my women-only private practice in heart of Kirby Muxloe, Leicester LE9. Its a wonderful leafy and peaceful location for women to come for counselling with me. You will find more about me right here:

Mindfulness for Beginners

I provide group and individual 1:1 sessions in Mindfulness at my practice in Kirby Muxloe. All Mindfulness sessions are women-only.

Making your well-being a priority

People often say they feel guilty investing in themselves. They may be used to caring for others and feel uncomfortable focusing on their own needs. In reality the opposite is true. When we invest in (or take care of) ourselves we can come to respect and value ourselves in ways that are fundamental to life satisfaction.

I understand how difficult it can be for any of us to acknowledge that we are struggling with a problem or difficulty. It's therefore hard sometimes to take the first step to talk to a counsellor. Making contact, by phone, or email if it feels easier, is experienced by many people as a first positive step in the right direction. We can then talk through what you need to know and what you are looking for.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have very many years experience working as a professionally qualified psychodynamic counsellor and I've work with private clients who have either contacted me directly or been recommended.

Please note that the kind of counselling I provide is not the same as the kind offered at most doctor's surgeries. The kind of professional training I embarked upon took several years to complete. This was not a superficial, quick fix, 'counselling skills course'. It was much much more. A deeply complex psychological understanding of human beings, how we develop, who we become, how we cope, how we heal: attachments, loss, pain, recovery.

I mention this because as in many professions, there are different levels of training. Does this matter to you? Maybe, maybe not. What will always matter however, is the type of person the counsellor is - the type of personality, the humanity, the humility, the sensitivity, the capacity to understand you in a way that you've possibly never experienced. This is crucial.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I work within their comprehensive ethical code of practice ensuring that appropriate standards of professional conduct are maintained.

My core professional training was undertaken within the University of Leicester's Counselling and Psychotherapy Department and I hold recognised professional qualifications.

Although I accept referrals from Doctors, Occupational Health Specialists and other professionals most people contact me directly.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

The above is just a guideline. For example, many people contact me about anger management counselling or because of relationship issues and discover that what lies behind these difficulties is the real problem. Equally many people seek out counselling not because they feel in crisis, but more because they feel unhappy, worried, alone, unfulfilled and have a gnawing sense that there has to be more to life.

Whatever you are struggling to deal with, counselling is experienced by many people as a really helpful way forward. Please however know that counselling is not offered as a substitute for GP consultation, diagnosis or medical treatment.

Further information

Available Appointments:

One of the many benefits of private counselling is that you are not left for months on a waiting list. People need to feel able to seek out counselling a the point when life feels difficult. They need the freedom to choose who they sense 'feels right' for them and who is available at times that fit in with their lives.
