I am a qualified person-centred counsellor. I believe that everyone has their own answers and that given the opportunity in a safe space, people are able to access their own resources to find the best solution for them.
I work in a respectful way and aim to provide a caring, non-judgemental, safe space for people to explore their feelings at their own pace.
I have worked with a wide range of clients with various issues in a variety of settings. These include working for a charity, volunteer work, and working in an Employee Assistance Program, as well as in private practice.
I am particularly experienced in working with clients who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse and also clients who have experienced traumatic bereavement through murder or suicide; however I believe that no issue is too small to bring to counselling.
How I work:
I am happy to work in a short term solution focused way or on a longer term basis depending on your own individual needs.
Sessions last for 50 mins to 1 hour and are normally once a week.
I offer a free initial chat by phone or in person to allow you to see if you would like to work with me.

Fees are normally £40 per hour. I will consider reduced rates if costs are a barrier to you and I am happy to discuss this with you.
I work from a counselling room in my back garden, and I hope that you find it a peaceful and calm environment.
