About me

You may have a particular issue that you want to explore, or something you want to change, but don't know how. You don't want to commit to open-ended counselling, but would like to see how it feels to talk to someone who can help you.

I offer time-focused counselling, usually for 6, 12 or 20 sessions, working face to face, online, using video link, or by telephone.

I specialise in womens' issues: life changes, loss, relationships, domestic abuse, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, ageing, particularly from a woman's perspective.

You may find that your problems are rooted in your past, and that you may be acting in ways that are not helpful to you, as a result of this. Alternatively, you may be finding it hard to adjust to some life event.   We can work together to explore this, and help you to develop the tools to make positive changes to your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I worked for some time in Art and Design education, before deciding on changing careers, and following my desire to help people improve their lives on a one-to-one basis.

My specialism is working with women who find themselves at a difficult point in their lives, using a time-focused approach, which encourages growth and change.

I was awarded a Diploma in Education Coaching by Newcastle College, and followed that by studying for a coaching diploma with the Coaching Academy.   I may use some of my coaching experience and skills if it will be helpful to you. I then achieved a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, a three year course run by Chichester Counselling Services, and accredited by the BACP. I learnt to work psychodynamically, helping people to understand how their past experiences can affect their lives. Since then, I have qualified to work in a variety of ways, to adapt to the needs of the person. I can work in a more problem-solving way with you, or using creative processes, such as Art, or explore mindfulness techniques. I qualified as an online therapist, studying a course that allowed me to expand my work to reach people who may find face-to-face counselling difficult in some way.

My qualifications are:

MA- Art and Design Education

Diploma in Education Coaching

Certificate in Personal Performance Coaching

Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling

Certificate in Time-Focussed Counselling

Certificate in Client Assessment

Certificate in Online Counselling(Cybertherapy)

I am registered with the BACP and am working towards accreditation.

I am based in West Sussex (Chichester) and Finistere (Carhaix-Plouguer)

We can discuss what you hope to gain from counselling, and whether time-focussed or open-ended work would meet your needs better. By the end of the consultation you should be able to decide if you would like to continue with me for counselling. We can then make appointments that will suit us both, using whichever form of communication works best for you.
