About me

I approach the work I do with a warm, empathetic, non-judgemental manner. 
My setting is a welcoming counselling room in a log cabin with the facilities to explore creatively if appropriate.

Initially training in art, which I still enjoy, I then embarked on my counselling career over 15 years ago. I gained a degree in Humanistic counselling at Chichester University.

My experience has seen me in a collaborative partnership running a school counselling service in Hampshire, working for a bereavement charity and a diverse private client list. I have particular experience in Autism, ADHD, OCD, Anxiety, Chronic illness and wellbeing.

I run wellbeing courses following my own course which can be on an individual basis or in small groups. The course is 6 weeks and can be used in a business setting, allowing employees to maintain their mental health and wellbeing in a team strengthening group.

I work with all ages, Children, young people and adults. I like to use creativity especially with my younger clients. I am happy to do home visits for those unable to attend my counselling room.

I offer face to face, online, home visits, telephone and text counselling. My wellbeing courses are face to face or via Zoom.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

Initial we will have a conversation over the telephone to get to know each other a little and discuss what you would like to gain from counselling. We will then book our first session and agree if these will be weekly or fortnightly. The amount of session will vary depending on why you are attending counselling but it is something that we will review regularly. Usually a minimum of 6 session will be beneficial.

I can take a card payment or send a link before the session. I will accept cash with a receipt on request. 
payment must be before or at the time of the session.
