About me

Well done for thinking about counselling, I feel confident this will be a positive step forward for you. I have over 20 years of counselling experience and a long career working in the health service and higher education. I am still as interested in this work as I was at the start of my career, it is challenging but very rewarding, I know that it helps as I have many testimonials from past clients who tell me what a difference it has made to their lives.

I use an integrated approach to my work, I find different approaches suit different individuals and presenting problems. I remain client centred throughout, this is your time, to share in an accepting, none judgemental environment with someone who listens to you and works with you to find a way forward.

I have a lot of experience working with bereavement and loss, including pregnancy loss. Many of my clients have experienced a traumatic bereavement, the loss of a partner, parent, sibling or child. Bereavement and loss can leave people feeling anxious, depressed, unable to think clearly and having difficulties dealing with everyday issues, relationships and work. You may be unwilling to burden family members or friends, or feel that they are wanting you to move on.  Counselling can help with all these issues.

I have supported many children and young people who have experienced bereavement, I know this presents many challenges to young people and those trying their best to care for them.  I offer child centred therapy for children and young people which allows them to express their thoughts and feelings through creative work and play therapy.

We experience many other losses in life, which may make us anxious, unhappy, lose self esteem and confidence these include relationship difficulties, divorce, redundancy, retirement, ill health and resulting disability. Counselling can help us to regain balance and begin to move forward.

I am able to offer training for large or small groups around bereavement and the challenges it can present for individuals in the workplace, care home, school or college. As an accredited trainer for Cruse bereavement care and a background as a University Lecturer I am able to customise workshops to meet individual and organisational requirements.

I also offer couples counselling for clients experiencing relationship difficulties. for whatever reason.
