Thank you for visiting my page.I am an experienced and qualified counsellor running a small private practice from home. I have a beautiful purpose built summerhouse where I can offer you one to one counselling in a peaceful and tranquil environment. I believe that for the counselling process to really work we need to address ourselves as a whole, mind, body and spirit. As a counsellor I aim to provide you with a healing experience where you can feel safe, held, and really heard and understood. I believe that when we are confused hurt or misunderstood, we don't need advice but just someone to listen and guide us through our choices so that we can make our own decisions.
I offer an initial assessment for us both to have the opportunity to meet and discuss your difficulties and for you to gain a sense if I am the right person for you. Sessions can be short or long term, where you can talk freely at your own pace in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential setting.

I have worked in many different caring environments. At present I am working above a G.P’s surgery where I am counselling people with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement and addiction. I have gained invaluable experience in helping people explore underlying problems such as low self-esteem and relationship issues.
As part of my social care training, I have worked with the elderly, in a primary school, and with the homeless. I have also worked in a women’s refuge with women suffering from the affects of domestic violence.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical guidelines.
