About me

Hi. I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor in the Huntingdon area. From time to time most of us need a different perspective on life. Family and friends can be helpful, but Counselling, in a confidential and non-judgemental environment, can offer a "Birdseye" view that can be beneficial. I offer Individual and Couples counselling in Huntingdon. For an informal talk about Counselling email me or give me a call.

During our first session we have the chance to meet and see if we can work together. It is important that you are comfortable and feel we can work together. Each session lasts 50 minute.

I am originally from Norway but have lived in the UK for over 27 years. Past clients have said they have found it useful working with a Counsellor who can, at times, see things from a different perspective.

Member organisations


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.
