About me

I am a person-centred counsellor with 18 years experience in a number of different environments. I have been an accredited member of BACP since 2009 and running my own practice for the past 7 years.

I offer clients a warm and safe space in which they can explore their difficulties and dilemmas, free from judgement. Both of us can work at making sense of what is happening in the client's life and this collaboration can help in gaining a better understanding of how the client arrived here and their preferred path for the future. I believe wholeheartedly that within this confidential and trusting relationship, acknowledgement and resolution of problems can begin to happen. Through greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, the client may start to see their world anew. Even one small change can make a big difference.

I work with clients experiencing, among other things, anxiety, stress, depression, loss and relationship difficulties. When we agree to work together, it can be for a limited number of sessions or open ended.

My work place is attached to my home, it is quiet, private and with parking available on site. It is a 10 minute walk to several bus routes into the centre of Reading.
