About me

I have over 25 years of experience in therapeutic work , for the past 10 years have worked as a counsellor in a University. I have also worked in the NHS, a 6th Form college and private practice.

I believe the most important thing in my work is to create a space where you feel really heard and where you are free to explore whatever is challenging you, so you can find your own way forward in a supportive, safe & non-judgemental space.

Counselling can be really helpful when we are finding things tough, either for a particular reason (for example, a bereavement or current stressful situation) or just in general - when everything feels too much and we need extra support or feel really stuck. Having the opportunity to talk through what you are experiencing offers you the chance to gain awareness  and perspective, which in turn, allows the possibility for more choice. Coming to counselling can also be invaluable in helping you to gain better coping strategies, strengthen your resources and find new ways of dealing with things in your life.

My Integrative training means I can draw from different styles to find a way of working which best suits you. Please do feel free to contact me to find out more about the way I work and whether you would like to book an initial appointment. When you come along for your first session we can discuss what  you would like to get out of your sessions and then together decide the best way forward.

The majority of my counselling experience is in short term work (6 - 18 sessions) and I also offer longer term therapy.

I have worked successfully with a diverse range of clients and issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, self-esteem, bereavement, eating disorders, identity, sexuality and relationship problems.

As well as individual work I am trained in group facilitation and at various times throughout the year I run groups for support on specific themes e.g. anxiety and self- esteem.

I am an experienced  supervisor for both students and qualified counsellors.
