About me

Hello, I offer a safe place where anything that may be bothering you can be spoken about, a place where I will listen without judgement & give you honest feedback with empathy.

Many people who seek counselling do so because they are feeling stuck; the way I work is to facilitate movement and ultimately to restore flow by giving space and time to the feelings and circumstances which have led you to where you are now at this point in your life.

I offer short term spiritual counselling* (6-14 sessions), shamanic counselling** (4-5 sessions) or shamanic healing sessions integrated with counselling skills (usually a one-off session which lasts 1.5 hours; every other session lasts one hour).

I am an experienced and caring counsellor & shamanic practitioner and walk alongside you in the spirit of joint enquiry, discovering the best way for you to move forward.

Please see my website for further information, or contact me.

*spiritual counselling has no dogma or religion attached; it comes from the premise that there is an infinite non-physical part of us that connects us to everyone & everything.  It holds wisdom & practical solutions we can use to help ourselves -  also sometimes called the superconscious, or universal energy.

**shamanic counselling is an integration of counselling and shamanic healing techniques.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Level 2 Counselling Skills
  • Level 3 Counselling Studies
  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.  In addition to this I have undertaken various trainings in bereavement including:
  • Awareness in Bereavement Care
  • Sudden & Traumatic Death
  • Bereaved by Suicide
  • Also 8 years of intensive Shamanic training - please see my website for further information.

    For 4 years I worked with a bereavement charity, successfully completing their in-house training and seeing clients 1-1 in their own homes.  I have also worked with a youth charity, mainly supporting staff members.  I run a successful private practice in Wells supporting people with all kinds of different issues. Before becoming a counsellor, I worked in the area of complementary health for many years.  I therefore also offer shamanic healing integrated with counselling. 

    I see clients in Wells (Somerset) or via phone/video connection.  Also occasional Saturdays in Glastonbury.  I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical guidelines.
