About me

I work with both individuals, short and long term, and couples in relationship.
When we struggle in our lives, our relationships, our work, our health, loss of loved ones or with aspects of our own character, life can seem very lonely. Reaching out might be difficult but there are so many ways that counselling can help with support and new understanding.
Our relationships can often leave us feeling challenged, angry and rather lost. We know they are important but we do not know which way to turn. We begin to doubt who we really are.
My training is in Transpersonal Psychotherapy, and I have had many years experience as a counsellor, psychotherapist, and supervisor. I work and practice in a way, where the aim is to help us connect with our own natural wisdom and nature. In everyday life, this allows us to be aware of a sense of meaning and purpose, and especially supports us at those most difficult times or with seemingly hopeless problems.
I believe that if we have a problem, whether it feels big or small, it is always worth exploring.

I work with both individuals and couples with whatever is the important issue. These can be wide and diverse and can include:

  • relationship issues
  • anger management
  • body symptoms
  • bereavement
  • low self-esteem
  • bullying
  • work-related issues
  • mid-life crisis
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • stress
  • trauma
  • childhood issues and many more.

Sometimes we need chance to explore why we have lost the ability to feel our way and enjoy life.

For individuals, I offer an initial, half hour free session so that you can get a "taste" of the process of counselling without commitment. I offer both short and long-term work depending on your needs.

Couple Work
I work either together with my husband or, if you prefer, alone. We are both under Supervision from the Centre for Gender Psychology.

Working creatively in couple work, the focus is on the relationship and its unconscious roots, the difference between genders as well as specialist issues such as sexuality and stepfamilies.

In our dedicated private sessions, the aim is to help you and your partner understand the way you behave so that there might be choice in the way ahead. Relationships are confusing and challenging and sometimes feel impossible to manage without help.

      ' Just when it feels like it might be the end - it may have only just begun.'

Our relationships are important.
