About me

I am an experienced counsellor and supervisor, and have worked in the Aldershot, Farnborough and Farnham areas for the past 15 years.

I worked as a counsellor at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care for 12 years which was an incredible privilege. I also provided counselling supervision.

I am the clinical Lead at No5 Young People, a counselling agency based in Reading offering free counselling for young people aged between 10 and 25 years old.

I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.

Sometimes it's hard to talk to friends or family about difficult issues, or perhaps you feel don't want to upset or burden them. This is where talking to a counsellor can often help.

I strongly believe the work is based in the relationship with the client and I have developed an approach and attitude which helps clients to feel safe, heard and valued.

I specialise in counselling people who have experienced bereavement and loss and have much experience working in palliative care and the many issues that presents.

I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

My counselling practice in Farnham is on the borders of Hampshire and Surrey and I am easily accessible from Camberley, Farnborough, Fleet, Aldershot, Lightwater, Sandhurst, Basingstoke, Godalming, Guildford, Woking, Liphook and Bordon. I offer a comfortable and private room for us to meet in.

We can arrange an initial free 30 minute session to establish what you are looking for from counselling and to confirm that we're happy to work together.

I also offer Skype sessions which can offer flexibility and overcome the issues of distance and time zone.

I am also offer supervision and have much experience working with qualified and trainee counsellors. In my experience trainees can really benefit from sharing the learning journey alongside other counselling trainees in a group setting.

Further information

Supervision

  • I Qualified as a Supervisor in 2012 after completing a diploma course with Cascade Associates.
  • I can provide one-to-one supervision and group supervision.
  • I supervise qualified counsellors but I am also experienced in supervising student counsellors. I have found that group supervision with students is a particularly rich and supportive way to help on the journey towards becoming qualified.

My style of supervision is quite collaborative in the group setting.

I initially enquire if anyone in the group has anything more pressing than the other members. Based on responses the time is divided up between each supervisee accordingly.

I feel it is important for supervisees to feel supported in their role as counsellor for the work they do with their clients.

It is vital that a supervisee can feel that they can bring any client issue, anything they doubt in themselves or any question regarding their work, without feeling criticised.

There is no such thing as a stupid question!

I believe that supervisees should feel comfortable in supervision and look forward to attending.
