About me

I believe you deserve the opportunity to transform those thoughts and behaviours holding you back from being who you want to be.

My aim is to support you in an environment of comfort and acceptance where you can feel safe talking about difficult issues. My approach is gentle, practical and solution focused. Together we will identify strategies to move you from where you are now to where you want to be, focusing initially on the area causing you most concern.

I work with clients on a range of issues from anxiety, depression, bereavement, trauma, family problems, addiction, career issues., LGBT and many more.   Asking for help is a courageous first step in moving you from where you are now to where you want to be.  By making an appointment to see me you are acknowledging you want to change and taking positive steps towards making that change.

I am a qualified supervisor, who will work with counsellors to explore the relationship between you and your client, ethical issues as well as guiding you to achieve your professional development goals. I believe this is a partnership process with each person bringing their individualism, experience, knowledge and wisdom to the relationship.

Further information

I am fully insured, qualified, a member of National Counselling Society, National Hypnotherapy Society and DBS certified through my work with Cruse Bereavement Care.

I am a Bereavement Support Volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Care in the South West, as well as a Cruse Registered Trainer – I deliver the 10-week Awareness in Bereavement Care training for volunteers and one day workshops to a variety of organisations throughout the South West.

I am a qualified hypnotherapist, accredited with the National Hypnotherapy Society. I believe using mindfulness techniques are key to supporting you achieve your goals from counselling. Whilst not the main aim of any counselling session, learning how to relax and manage those trigger moments using your breathing and thought patterns can improve the quality of your day to day life.

I have worked in the voluntary sector as both a volunteer and a paid staffer for most of my working life.  I have a passionate commitment to the development and mentoring of individuals to achieve their personal and professional goals.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
