About me

I offer confidential professional counselling that offers mutual respect, equality and a non-judgemental atmosphere. Counselling provides an opportunity to explore aspects of one's personality and behavioural patterns to gain a deeper level of insight and understanding about oneself. Your unique individuality will help to shape the approach that I believe will best support you during the therapeutic process. This is known as an integrative approach to counselling.

Counselling can help individuals and couples to manage and overcome many areas of their lives including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family issues, abuse, and panic disorder.

During your initial assessment session we will agree a working contract including the time and frequency of future sessions, and to provide you with an opportunity to consider and outline any issues of concern. My private practice is based in Hardwick, Cambridge, where I provide a relaxed and private environment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic/Integrative Counselling and have been practising for 13 years with a wide range of client issues.

As well as my private practice I receive referrals from the Cambridgeshire County Council employment access to psychotherapy service and I also work as a volunteer member of the Bereavement Support Team at the Arthur Rank Hospice. My previous experience includes working as a volunteer counsellor for Centre 33 helping children and young adults and Choices for Women helping adult survivors with a history of childhood sexual abuse.
