About me

I have worked as a counsellor for over 19 years and provide my clients with counselling from a comfortable, peaceful, private room in Clevedon. I offer long term and short term counselling for individuals from the age of 13 upwards.

You will be offered a safe, respectful non judgemental environment where trust can be built up and you can work through your issues at your own pace and in complete confidence. I am calm, warm and approachable and view all my clients as individuals with their own unique story.

I have worked with clients of both sexes from all backgrounds and walks of life and am open and flexible in my approach, believing that you should feel free to use your sessions in the way that feels best for you, with us working side by side in our aim to explore and resolve your difficulties.

I have specialist training in domestic abuse issues for women and the trauma of rape and sexual abuse. I work as a sessional counsellor in several charity settings as well as in my own practice.

I also have a great deal of experience of working with adolescents and young people due to having previously worked in a college environment and currently working with young people who have experienced abuse, for a specialist organisation.

I am committed to my ongoing professional development, receive regular supervision and keep up to date with current counselling research and regularly attend training courses, workshops and seminars.

My practice room is close to the town centre and near to bus routes and there is on street parking nearby.
