About me

Unexpected or ongoing difficult life events can often leave us feeling unable to 'think straight' and/or feel ok in ourselves. I offer my clients a calm and positive space to work through those challenges, giving an opportunity for self-reflection utilising a combination of coaching and counselling methodologies

During our sessions, I work directly on problem-solving behaviours, helping you to develop day-to-day tools for finding constructive, creative solutions to the things you’re finding difficult. This is an approach that is designed to promote personal growth and change, offering the opportunity to develop the kinds of skills that can be applied to all areas of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and offer a range of therapies to suit client’s needs. I work with adults on a short, medium, and long-term basis, online and face to face.

I have particular experience working as a Bereavement and Loss Counsellor within a Hospice setting and as a Life Coach with a focus on general health and wellbeing, diet and exercise. Previous experience gained within the NHS in the Time to Talk service focused on a variety of areas including anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties and living with ongoing health issues. I have worked in the Financial Services Sector for over 26 years, specialising in People Resource Management so bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to my practice in association with this, especially in relation to Life and Careers coaching.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
