About me

I support clients as they sort through what is hurtful or confusing and I help them catch hold of what is really important. I am skilled, safe, and I listen well.

Counselling should slow you down and improve your ability to cope with upsets in the present. It should also help you work out where to go next. In my counselling room, you may say the things you wouldn't say anywhere else, and talk yourself towards fuller understanding.

The aim of the first session is to see whether it might be helpful to carry on with counselling!
You are welcome to ring me to discuss how I might be able to help. If I can't answer the phone immediately, I will get back to you very soon.

I see clients in a dedicated space in my home on the edge of a village in the Forest of Dean. Parking is very straightforward.

I have a particular understanding of clients from the world of education because counselling is my ‘third-age’ career, begun after many years as a teacher and teacher trainer.

I work using a ‘relational integrative’ method, which draws on humanistic, especially person-centred approaches, as well as a number of others as appropriate, including CBT. I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
