In my role as a counsellor, I have extensive experience working with young people and adults. Previous clients have presented me with a wide range of difficulties including:
- Depression and low mood
- Anxiety and stress
- Low self esteem
- Life changes
- Panic Disorder
About my practice
I am a trained, qualified and experienced counsellor and I aim to provide you with a safe, warm and caring space to explore your life story. I know that life can leave us anxious, depressed, confused and sometimes angry. I believe that by listening to you, I can provide an opportunity for you to understand your present and past experiences to gain insights into your feelings and behaviour. This will help you live the life you want to.
My counselling diploma was in the Person Centred Approach. This means that I will draw from various theories to suit each client. I believe I can help you, no matter whatever your age or personal story.
I spent 10 years working as a counsellor for Cruse and now work for Help in Trowbridge. I am a retired teacher and found great fulfilment working with teenagers

- Member of BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Counselling usually takes place once a week at the same time each week
All sessions are one hour
I work from home and am very flexible happy to work days, including weekends, and evenings.
