About me

Hello and welcome. I am a positive, friendly, compassionate, experienced counsellor for individual adults.
Whatever your present situation, I can help you improve your state of mind and deal more effectively with your life challenges.

I will help you build resilience and become more flexible, optimistic and realistic.
You will be in safe hands with me. I am a qualified, BACP registered and accredited counsellor, with more than 23 years experience in private practice and in organisational settings, including many years as a counsellor within the NHS.

I also train and supervise other counsellors.

I can work in a short term solution focused way, or longer term, taking an open ended approach, depending on what is required. I have good outcomes.

I adapt my working methods to suit the needs of the clients. However, I find that Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) offer positive techniques and good results for most clients.

I offer a 50 minute assessment initially, followed by regular, weekly, 50 minute appointments if you choose to work with me. If, after the assessment, I think that counselling with me is not the best way forward for you, I will direct you elsewhere in order to best help you.

Please see my website for further details and explanations about types of therapy.

Further information

In my personal life I have had a long and happy marriage. I have raised two children, one of whom has autistic spectrum difficulties causing him to have extremely challenging behaviour. This has made family life very stressful at times. As a result, I believe that I can be especially helpful for clients struggling with parenting issues. I no longer provide couples counselling, although I have done in the past. I do, however, feel that I can be very helpful working on relationship issues with individuals as a result of my past experience of couples work.
