About me

Welcome to my profile. I re-located from Hampshire to Somerset in May 2013 and have set up a private practice in my home in Porlock. I am a warm, supportive and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, providing therapy in a professional and confidential environment. I place great importance on the acceptance of each person's uniqueness and offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore difficult issues.

I work with individual adults and young people aged 16+, either on a short or long-term basis. My experience covers a wide range of issues, including working with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, guilt and trauma. I have specialised in bereavement counselling through my work with Cruse Bereavement Care.

As a gestalt counsellor I value all aspects of human potential, needs, experience and existence: social, cognitive, bodily, spiritual, emotional and environmental. Everything we have experienced has shaped us and our way of being. Gestalt therapy focuses on feelings, thoughts and patterns of behaviour in the present, seeking to raise an individual's awareness of obstacles to growth and address unresolved situations that are causing concern. It is a relational and collaborative process, empowering the person seeking therapy to find their own ways of coping, understanding or adjusting.

Choosing a therapist can be a perplexing decision and one that requires careful consideration. An introductory session provides an opportunity for us to meet and explore what you might need from therapy. We can then decide together whether I am the right person to help you and if you would like to proceed further. Sessions last for 60 minutes and are usually weekly. The number of sessions are dependent on your individual requirements.
