About me

Hello, I am a Person-Centred Counsellor. In my private practice, I offer Counselling, Psychotherapy and Support for adults, children (aged 11 years +), students, and teachers. I offer a safe, warm and accepting secure base to help you explore difficult feelings and experiences and find a way forward that is right for you.

Who Can I Help?

I help clients with a wide range of difficulties. I have a particular interest in working with adult clients who are experiencing stress, anxiety and/or relationship difficulties that feel stuck and unable to move on in life.

I enjoy working with children and young people and work with them in schools and private practice. Attachment difficulties and Autistic Spectrum disorder are areas of special interest for me.

What Am I Like?

I am a calm, approachable and friendly person that clients find easy to work with. I use a Person-Centred approach to psychotherapy that is based on empathy, acceptance, and congruence. It is the establishment of this safe and understanding relationship that supports the personal growth and development of my clients.

Finding help is the first stage in taking steps towards a better future. However, I do understand how daunting it can feel to ask for help for yourself or a child.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Professional Reflection

Teaching is a very rewarding but often demanding and stressful profession. Within the working day teachers have little opportunity or time to professionally consider the difficulties and situations they encounter. Over time this can lead to feelings of isolation, anxiety and stress. This can have a negative impact on a teacher’s professional and personal life. I offer a confidential support service for educational leaders, experienced and newly qualified teachers and student teachers. Having the opportunity to reflect on your professional experiences and speak openly and freely to an experienced professional in confidence can help support your professional life and improve your personal life.

I offer this service in my private practice in Burnside. The frequency of meetings is entirely up to you and your requirements.
