About me

I am a qualified counsellor and supervisor with experience in supporting individuals with a range of issues. I practice just outside Winchester in Hampshire and offer a secure, respectful and non-judgemental atmosphere to enable you to feel safe to talk openly.

Some of the issues I am most experienced with include, loss and bereavement, terminal illness, cancer diagnosis, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, bullying, abuse, low confidence and self-esteem, shame and general relationship problems.

Things happen in life that can make you feel like you can’t cope or you want to change the way you behave in certain situations. Counselling can make a real difference to how you think and feel about things and can enable you to make the changes you need to lead a more positive life.

My practice is changing to encompass the training I have been doing with Dr Gabor Maté.

Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world. My work now encompasses the body, to listen to it and care for it and understand its very subtle language to get to the core of your pain and challenges.

Self-compassion is at the heart of my work.  Often our self-destructive behaviours are symptoms of what lies beneath the surface. The triggers and emotions are the cause of our difficulties, not the behaviour itself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I have experience working with a range of individuals in both private practice and public institutions.  I previously worked for the NHS as a Cancer Nurse Specialist.

My approach is predominately humanistic, making connection the core of my work. I will support you and provide curiosity, care, compassion, connectedness, calmness and clarity.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Additional information

Individual sessions are 50 minutes in duration and can be booked one at a time or in a block. The overall number of sessions will depend on the nature of what you wish to explore and the pace at which you feel comfortable to work. Some clients will come for a few sessions of short-term therapy to look at a specific issue; others will choose to work for a longer period on an open-ended basis. When we meet we can talk through what feels right for you and we can review these arrangements at any time.

The fee for each session is £65.

The initial session is 20 minutes duration.

I offer concessions on request.
