About me

You may call me Penelope or Penny. I am 50, married with two adult children.

At times life will burden each one of us with pressures or difficulties. We can find that we are so engrossed in the issue that we don't recognise the most obvious course of action.

Friends and family can sometimes help, but often we will tell different parts to different people, counselling will give you the opportunity to say all of it in one space. As we reflect on it all new thoughts and perspectives will help you, not only with this particular issue, but with other areas too.

I work from a therapy room at my home so you will feel comfortable and at ease as you talk about your issues.

People often ask me what I actually do to help, and I am often stumped with this because I really don't know. So I often ask my clients what it is that did help them, and usually they say it just helps to talk. But from my personal experience it helps, for me, to talk to the right person, someone who is able to listen and is patient and understanding.


Feedback:

'I've come such a long way in ways I never thought I could which is in no small part down to you. Your listening, calmness, and thoughts quickly made me feel very comfortable (a rare thing for me) and meant I could really be myself and more honest than I've ever been. Thank you.'

                                            ***********************************

'It has been good to work with you and I have gained a greater degree of self-awareness and understanding. I really appreciate the way in which you gently challenge me to seek a greater degree of understanding of my own self, the choices I make and how this fits with my patterns of relating and ways of being. I am increasingly aware of the changes taking place within me as a result of our sessions together. Thank you.'

                                                  *********************************

'Myself and my partner had a series of counselling sessions with Penny spanning about six months.We have both had individual counselling before but never as a couple and I found the idea daunting and exposing.
We had a lot of confusion in our lives bought on by circumstances and dubious decisions and were quite lost and taking it out on each other.Over the weeks Penny was able to help us unravel the confusion, in a safe space she was able to slowly help us unpick the real issues and look at our life and relationships with perspective.
Some of the results were shocking and quite literally life changing.I personally was amazed at how much of myself I could explore and dare to face. With warmth and empathy but always professional Penny was there for me and my partner at the most difficult time of our relationship.I cannot thank her enough for the safe space we created together and the strength I now feel to carry on.'            

                                       
                                                 *********************************************

'Although I was unsure about discussing my problems and dilemmas with complete stranger, I can say it was one of the best things I have done. I am now evaluating my life...I am no longer scared of change...'

                                                ***********************************************

'I was sceptical about counselling in the beginning, but now I would recommend it to everyone. Not only did it help me with bereavement but different aspects of my life as well.'
