About me

Are you going through an anxious time, suffering from the loss of a loved one, struggling with problems in your relationships or maybe feeling stressed at work? Sometimes we find ourselves in a difficult place and we're not quite sure how we arrived there.  I can offer you a confidential and safe environment to help you find a way through your difficulties.  I will listen to you without judging you or trying to 'fix' you.  As an integrative counsellor, I have a wide variety of theories and styles to draw on to suit the needs of the individual person. This means that every approach is personal and tailored to your specific requirements. I am qualified to counsel adults, young people and children.

My experience

My journey into counselling began when I sought my own personal therapy to help me negotiate challenges in my life. Through the listening ear of my very patient counsellor I was able to reflect on my past, make sense of my situation and feel empowered to move foreword with hope and purpose into the next chapter of my story.

I trained as an integrative counsellor at Newman University and have been counselling adults at The Well Counselling, Malvern, and supervising bereavement volunteers for Cruse Bereavement Care.  In my private practice I see adults, children and young people. I work as a primary school counsellor in Wales and have recently begun working in a local primary school as a school counsellor. My counselling room is in my home, in a small village near Tewkesbury.

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and adhere to their ethics and guidelines. I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I have achieved the BACP Certificate of Proficiency. After my initial training in psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural therapy, I completed training in Bereavement through Cruse Bereavement Care. I later trained in working with children who had been bereaved and as a supervisor with Cruse.

Counselling children

I  trained to work with children and young people at the University of South Wales where I gained an MA. I have helped children with depression, behavioural issues, obsessive-compulsive disorder, self-harm, anxiety, autism, family problems, anger, bullying, low self-esteem, sexual abuse and bereavement. When working with children and young people I use creative counselling skills, play and sand tray work to help the child/young person engage in the process. I often work through story making which helps the children to externalise their problem by looking at it from a different perspective. Through stories, the child or young person (or adult) can view the problem from another point of view and they do not feel exposed.  Many of the games I use are made by myself and tailored to the individual child.

Wheelchair user access

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.

Owing to the Pandemic, I am offering online counselling by Zoom or Doxy.Me As soon as it is possible to work face to face I will resume working this way in my home.
