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.

Sessions are 50 minutes in length.
Regular appointments take place at the same time each week unless your work does not allow this.
I require 48 hours notice for cancellations.

I am a registered member of BPC and abide by their professional standards and code of ethics. I am fully insured and hold enhanced DBS checks for Wiltshire and Somerset.
My consulting room is a quiet, comfortable space in my home in North Bradley, near Trowbridge and Westbury.
In order to gain access to my consulting room and bathroom facilities you must be able to negotiate six steps and is therefore not suitable for clients with severe mobility issues.
There is plenty of parking on a private driveway outside my home.
