About me

I have been nurse, am a practicing midwife and came to counselling with a very great respect for a holistic approach to people’s care.

At times life throws us situations where we would benefit with a conversation and opportunity to explore thoughts or feelings with another.

This journey looks very different according to need. Our lives are often busy. Then brief effective interventions can be the most helpful pathway. At other times it is wiser to explore and consider the past and its relationship to your emotional responses in more depth. Often unblocking these places is more possible than you imagine.

I have years of experience working in both long term and short term therapy, incorporating whichever tools and counselling approaches are appropriate in individual situations. I believe it is important to work closely with clients to decide together what will be helpful.

I specialise in trauma work: Birth trauma PTSD Phobias Anxiety Panic. I enjoy counselling and with clients always seek to create a therapeutic and helpful environment. I am a clinical supervisor for counsellors, have also been a supervisor of midwives for over fifteen years and I enjoy working with students. I offer reduced fees for both counselling and supervision of students. I work with individuals, men and women, and couples.
