About me

About me.

I have always worked in a caring profession, and have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist for over twenty years. I started as a nurse when I left school, then trained as a counsellor and psychotherapist after having children.
I have worked in organisations such as the NHS, schools and Sure Start Centres. Over my time in this profession I have worked with many issues. I enjoyed working with people who were finding it hard to lose weight. Clients who had had many difficulties with the impact of growing up with dyslexia, and also the impact from childhood abuse. From these some can come feelings of rejection, anger and shame. However, no two people are the same and so I will look at your needs as an individual. The most effective way of resolving issues lies in finding routes for change, transforming how you see yourself and your place in the world.

I am passionate about my work as I think the people who come to me want something to change in their life and are willing to do something different to make that change.

When we first meet.

I offer a free initial consultation. This will be for 50 mins. This with enable you to talk about your concerns and to see whether you would like to work with me and for me to check I can help you. You can then take the time you need to consider if you want to proceed with the therapy.
