About me

I have a strong background in Nursing and Health Visiting, so listening to peoples' difficulties in confidence has always been at the centre of my work. We all need to be heard and accepted whatever the problem and it doesn't necessarily need a crisis for us to acknowledge that we need help.

As a counsellor I prefer to practice psychodynamically, which means linking current behaviour and relationships with peoples' past experiences and relationships. However, I can also help clients to overcome their difficulties by using solution-focussed therapy and CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy).

My private practice is in a confidential setting in Rutland and there is adequate parking space available.

If you decide to contact me you will initially be offered an assessment session (no charge), and if we feel that counselling is appropriate we can then arrange to meet for weekly sessions.

Areas of counselling I can help with: abuse, adolescent issues, anxiety, bereavement and loss, bullying, depression, eating disorders, family problems, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, panic attacks, self-harm, stress, relationship issues, the ageing process and its challenges.

Clients I work with include, adults, couples, families, older adults, young people 15 years +
