About me

I am a counsellor with over 21 years experience of helping people recover from anxiety, stress, depression and unhappiness. I tailor my approach to meet your needs. Research shows that the most important thing for counselling to be helpful is a good rapport and partnership between counsellor and client. I bring warmth, compassion, humour, calmness and sensitivity to my work as well as skills built through training and experience during my long career.

You want to work things out and feel better as fast as possible. I want to help you. Together we can understand your situation, build on your strengths and increase your capacity and confidence to make changes in how you face the world.

As well as being a highly trained counsellor I am also a qualified and registered teacher of mindfulness which I find often helps me and my clients (if they are interested) to retrain and reshape the brain and mind to be happier, wiser, kinder and calmer.

Further information

I have worked in colleges and university settings for 21 years and have a wealth of experience with young adults and people from other countries and cultures. I also worked with staff in these settings giving me a clear insight into work-related stress and resilience building. I have been in private practice alongside this work for several years and I am now focussing all my energy on my private work.

I offer training, workshops and conference address on keynote topics including stress and anxiety, resilience, courage and authenticity. I also write a regular blog on mindfulness and run mindful events and courses. I work with business, charities, schools and individuals.
