About me

I am a person centered Senior Accredited Counsellor and Counselling Supervisor. I have extensive experience and have worked 25 years within the NHS. I have worked in private practice for the last ten years.

I offer warm, empathic and respectful counselling to adults who are experiencing stressful issues. I offer an initial assessment appointment to assess your needs and at the end of that appointment you will be able to decide if you wish for further appointments. I specialise in Bereavement, Grief and loss of any kind, and workplace stress.

I have extensive experience counselling clients who have suffered heart issues and who have undergone cardiac rehabilitation. Cardiac clients suffer psychological issues relating to loss. I also offer counselling to carers of those clients.

As a Senior Accredited Supervisor, I offer person centred, solution focused and cbt supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors. I supervise trainees, CfD supervision and IAPT models of supervision.

I see Corporate Clients, Employment Assisted Providers, individuals and teams/groups.
