About me


I am a BACP registered and accredited senior counsellor & psychotherapist with more than 20 years of clinical experience. I work with individuals and couples and support parents of children with mental health problems. I am also a qualified supervisor.

I have recently completed a post qualifying course in couple therapy with Tavistock Relationships!  I hugely benefited from this training, developing a more in-depth understanding of the dynamics within couples and how to support couples who wish to work with me more effectively.

Prior to becoming a counsellor, I was a social worker within mental health.
For more than 12 years I worked as a GP counsellor within the NHS. I have worked for a number of counselling agencies and ongoing in private practice.

My specialism is in short-term counselling (please look on my website for further information), but I also offer other counselling contracts.

The initial appointment with a new client or a new couple is used as a counselling assessment. This is an in-depth exploration about why the individual or couple is coming now, what they are looking & hoping for from counselling, their present situation and their past history.

Seeking counselling is a brave step, especially if you have no previous experience. But it can be a huge relief to be with a professional person in a confidential space where only you matter.

A qualified and experienced counsellor is trained to listen and sensitively explore personal difficulties, especially when the underlying cause may be emotional. Emotional difficulties can have a very depleting affect on everyday life. They may be experienced mentally, physically or on a feeling level.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am very interested in the relationship between mind and body and how sometimes deep emotional trauma finds expression through physical symptoms and physical conditions, which is not to say that I believe that all illnesses are psychosomatic. However, I offer counselling for chronic and long-term health conditions.

My consulting room is on the Bath side of Frome.

From time to time I offer workshops called 'Don't worry-be happy', an introduction to mental well-being and mindfulness, where participants will learn more about anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and health related issues. Participants will also be introduced to basic principles of mindfulness and do some practice in this.
