A qualified integrative transpersonal counsellor with a Diploma from Re-Vision, I draw on a number of psychotherapeutic disciplines and take a holistic approach to work with individuals.
I work with anger, anxiety, depression, trauma and loss, particularly loss through bereavement including childhood bereavement. Whether you are struggling with relationship issues, feeling sad or stuck, we can work together to explore what may lie behind these feelings and how they are impacting your life today.
Counselling can help us to explore painful or difficult experiences from our past that may impact our relationships and how we live our lives today. Creating safe, confidential and supportive conditions that encourage growth, I aim to work with each client to make meaning of their story and to bring about change. I believe spirituality is an important aspect of our humanity and I can work with you to find your own understanding and expression of a rich and grounded spiritual life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, BACP registered with a Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Counselling. With over twenty years experience working in the charitable sector, I was drawn to train with Re-Vision: Counselling and Psychotherapy with a Soulful Perspective because of their belief that counselling and psychotherapy are vital for transformation in troubled times.
I have particular experience in bereavement counselling having worked with clients at Royal Trinity Hospice.
I work with individuals and am open to both short-term (usually 6-12 sessions) and open-ended work.
Regular supervision and a commitment to my ongoing personal and professional development are part of my work.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have particular experience in working with loss, whether you are experiencing loss through bereavement, broken relationships or the loss of a job or change in circumstances. I also work with clients grieving what hasn't been possible and the deep sense of loss and bewilderment that can accompany unfulfilled hope.
My fee is £75 per 50 minute session. I have a small number of sessions available at reduced rates, please ask about this if you would like to know more.
A practicing member of the Community of Spiritual Directors, I work with individuals wishing to explore their understanding and expression of a meaningful spiritual life.
