About me

Now that you are considering counselling you have made the first step towards making the life changes you desire. By working together with me, exploring your thoughts and feelings in a trusting and empathic relationship, you can learn about yourself and bring about those life changes.
I offer counselling in a private and confidential setting where you will not be judged. Sessions take place at my home in a dedicated room providing privacy and a comfortable environment.
I am trained as a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor which means I can call on a range of disciplines and techniques designed to suit you as an individual. Once we have built a trusting relationship using dialogue we may move on to utilising more creative methods such as sand tray, artwork, timeline and guided visualisation.

Please phone me for an informal chat. We can then make an appointment at a mutually convenient time for a free thirty minute session to see if counselling will be helpful to you and that we can work together.

As well as my private practice I have worked as a bereavement counsellor for Cruse Bereavement Care for many years.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their Code of Ethics and Practice (please see my listing in the BACP 'Seeking a Therapist' site) I am covered by Professional Indemnity insurance.
I attend regular supervision and undertake ongoing training and professional development.
