About me

We all struggle with our lives at times and can become overwhelmed by difficult thoughts and feelings.

Perhaps you have suffered trauma or loss or have difficulties in your relationships with yourself and others.

Finding the right counsellor for you or your child is an important first step.

I am a Creative Arts Counsellor working with children, teenagers and adults.

I use a variety of approaches depending on the client I am working with.

First and foremost I endeavour to facilitate a safe supportive environment, a space where you are free to be yourself.

I am passionate about using the arts (painting, drawing, clay, sandtray, music..) within therapy and also working outdoors and with nature.

I work from a secluded indoor studio in the New Forest, not far from Ringwood.

For adult clients it may be possible to work in nearby forest spaces or to have walking therapy.

For younger clients I have a safe and contained outside space to explore and incorporate nature into our sessions.

I believe that in each of us lies the innate power to heal ourselves. I endeavour to support you on this journey and work with you towards any goals you may have.

Please do contact me for further information or to arrange a time to meet.

Our first meeting would be an introductory session. This would be an opportunity for you to talk about what you wish to work towards in therapy and to decide whether I am the right person to work with you or your child.

I am a registered member of BACP and I am bound by their code of ethics.
