About me

I am a BACP Accredited Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist with over 27 years experience. I also provide supervision and training to other therapists.

I offer private counselling and psychotherapy at my home office in Mile End, Colchester. There is parking outside and I am also only a few minutes from the main rail station and on an easy bus route.

Considering Counselling can often be a daunting experience and I am happy to have an informal discussion over the phone with anyone interested, but feeling unsure.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and have been practicing for 25 years. I have worked in general practice, private practice and in education.
As well as my private practice I am currently the senior counsellor in a local college, where I have worked for 16 years.
I am also a qualified teacher and have worked as a Counselling Trainer for over 20 years and as a Supervisor for 14 years.
I am also an experienced telephone counsellor and offer e-counselling services.
In 2007 I set up Person-Centred Workshops which offers continuing professional development activities to other therapists and Supervision Training.
I also completed a Masters degree in Focusing and Experiential Psychotherapy at the University of East Anglia in 2008.
I am also qualified as a "Counselling for Depression" (CfD) supervisor so I am able to work with counsellors using this approach, both in training and once qualified.
My formal qualifications are:
MA, B.Ed (Hons), Diploma Counselling (BACP Accredited Training), Certificate Supervision.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Focusing Teaching


From January 2019 my fees for new clients & supervisees are:

Individual Counselling £40 (reduced rates may be available for student counsellors)

Supervision £45 per hour / £65 per 1.5 hours (£35 for students and newly qualified counsellors - also available for those counsellors working solely on a voluntary or low cost basis).

Working from my home office means I am able to keep my overheads, and therefore my fees, as low as possible. However if cost is an issue some concessions may be available, please contact me to discuss this.

Further information

I can also offer telephone counselling, or appointments using Skype for those who may find it difficult to attend in person. Please contact me if you would like to discuss these options.
