About me

I am a fully qualified, experienced counsellor working in Chalfont St Peter, Beaconsfield, and the surrounding area. I work with adults and young people and I offer both short term counselling and, longer term open ended therapy. Shorter term work offers a focussed approach to one or two particular concerns. Longer-term work allows a more in-depth consideration of significant experiences and feelings that need more time to explore and reflect upon. This exploration in a warm, non-judgemental and confidential environment can offer a reduction in stress and anxiety and a greater sense of wellbeing over time.

I work from a psychodynamic perspective. This way of working understands that our relationship patterns and ways of behaving can be impacted by earlier experiences and unacknowledged thoughts and feelings.  Giving a voice to difficult feelings can help us to think about how we experience ourselves and others, and develop the capacity to change.

If you would like to explore the possibility of counselling with me, please leave a telephone message or email me and I will contact you to arrange an initial consultation. This will be for about an hour and will give us time to discuss your current situation. Ongoing sessions are arranged at a mutually convenient time and at the same time/day each week, for 50 minutes.

I completed a five year postgraduate training accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their codes of ethics and best practice. I currently work in private practice, as part of the Chiltern Counsellors Network, seeing adults and young people.  I also work at Watford Women's Centre as a staff and assessment counsellor. I have worked for a young person's counselling centre locally and continue to work with young people privately with issues such as exam stress, social life and family issues. I have an enhanced DBS certificate and full professional indemnity.
