About me

Thank you for taking the first step to see if counselling is for you. I am a positive believer that if you are unhappy in your life that change is possible. As a Senior BACP Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor I know that seeking help can be extremely difficult. I have a vast amount of experience in both the NHS and the private sector dealing with all types of difficulties. I am an Integrative counsellor which means that I use various approaches such as  Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, CBT and Person-centred therapy based on individual client needs to ensure the most effective outcomes are achieved. Within my practice I offer both open- ended counselling and short term counselling for both adults, families and children over the age of 8.

My practice is based on recommendations from people who have had a positive experience of counselling they have received from me.

Within the practice my specialties are in the following :- Cancer and life threatening illnesses, Bereavement, Grief Recovery, Stress, Adoption, Anxiety and Depression, Couple Counselling and Family Therapy.

I also offer a 8 week Grief Recovery Method Programme which is a non counselling approach. This  method is suitable for anyone who has suffered a loss which can be bereavement, loss of job, loss of a home, divorce or separation.  This programme can be done individually or in a small group.

I undertake work with health professionals:- GPs, Nurses, Mental Health Workers, Social Workers and other allied health professionals for  counselling or supervision.

I undertake E.A.P work for Workplace Wellness, Simply Health & I am BUPA recognised
