About me

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where we can explore together what may be troubling you. This may include anxiety, depression, life changes or low self esteem. I provide a quiet secluded space within my consulting room at home, telephone or online counselling where you will be heard.

I have enjoyed working in a variety of places for education over the last 24 years and have lived and worked in Canada and the USA. I have over 24 years of experience in working with young people, adolescents and those adults who care for them, in different environments, and cultures. I understand some of the challenges that face our young people and their families at this time and am interested in working with those who feel challenged.

My training will help us consider how past experiences may affect how we relate to others and to ourselves. Together we will work on finding oneself, leading to a feeling of acceptance and security.

I am in the process of becoming a qualified psychosexual therapist and am specialized in working with clients with sexual problems eg. erectile disfunction, premature ejaculation, vaginismus, dyspareunia or sexual problems due to an operation, menopause etc.

I am a registered member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and abide by their code of ethics. I am also a member of COSRT.

My consulting room is a quiet, comfortable space in my home in North Bradley, near Trowbridge and Westbury.
