About me

I come from a person centred background, which means that you, the client are free to  talk about what is important to you. I will try and help you make sense of- and move forward with this  by assisting you to reflect on patterns and the meaning  you make of things that you are telling me.

I feel I work in a practical and human way. I explore lifestyle, values and goals, then try and find ways to help you move towards these goals.

I have been working at the University of Cumbria counselling students for the past 22 years (2 days a week) and for the past 7 years have also had a small private practice. Working with Occupational health agencies, private clients, and both qualified and trainee counsellors as a supervisor.

I offer a small discount to people on a low income (below £16,000).
