About me

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

I am a Creative Arts Counsellor working with children and teenagers. I am also an Environmental Art Therapist.

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 the child feels free to be themselves.

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.

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

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 your child to gain from therapy and to decide whether I am the right person to work with your child.

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