About me

I am a highly experienced, highly qualified, registered & accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist & Clinical Supervisor based in Little Haywood, near Rugeley, between Lichfield, Stafford and Cannock, in Staffordshire, within easy reach of Derbyshire and the West Midlands. I have extensive experience of working with individuals, couples and young people, covering a wide range of issues.

I work very collaboratively with my clients; trying to understand their world from their perspective, but also offering a fresh view on the issues they present and sometimes using my knowledge of the theory behind human emotional growth, development and behaviour to shed light on how they are feeling.  I  create a warm, accepting and non-judgemental environment, in which my clients feel safe to be truly themselves.

Why do we need counselling? Most of the time, we feel able to face the challenges and ups and downs of life, but sometimes we can become overwhelmed by our feelings or by events.  Counselling can provide us with the opportunity to explore what is going on for us and try to make sense of it.
