About me

What’s Available:

  • Private Counselling
  • For Adults
  • Humanistic Integrative (Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Person Centred)
  • Short term (6-10 sessions)
  • Ongoing Counselling

What to expect:

  • First session is an assessment, to assess your needs/if I can support you best
  • 6-10 counselling sessions recommended initially, ongoing support if required
  • End your sessions any time you wish to
  • If you want to see if you can work with me first please book an introduction session

About me:

  • Humanistic Integrative Counsellor
  • Registered Member of the BACP
  • I have had a variety of different careers before counselling e.g. military intelligence, police control room operator, secondary school teacher, lecturer and kinship foster carer. This has involved working with people, sometimes in crisis situations to achieve the best possible outcome.
  • I have life experience of being within a dysfunctional family which has included alcoholism, drugs, missing/homeless family members, psychosis, social services/children in care and more recently PTSD. I was a finalist for Influential Woman of the Year in 2015 for supporting my niece through sudden paralysis to recovery.
  • I currently work in Primary Care as Health Coach/Counsellor and due to working with time limitations my 'style' can sometimes be slightly directive and perhaps challenging to help facilitate change/breaking of patterns - if this is your goal.
