About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor based in Ripley, the counselling suite is located on the picturesque and tranquil village green. I offer short and long-term open ended counselling to both women and men.

I conduct the counselling a safe, confidential space, in which to discuss your own unique experience of any issues you have, and through a therapeutic non-judgemental relationship will work with you to bring about change that I believe we are all capable of.

Life can be difficult at times and we can find ourself struggling with feelings and emotions that have a negative impact upon our relationships and lives.I know personally how helpful counselling can be in raising awareness of our choices and responsibilities in life.

In 1998 I lost my central vision which in turn meant I could no longer drive or continue working in my chosen profession. Everything I thought I knew about myself was thrown into turmoil as I struggled to make sense of what had happened. Counselling was not offered to me at the time and I suffered with severe bouts of anxiety and depression. It was not until some years later that I was able to work through the pain of my loss and begin to process all the feelings I had been avoiding and denying.

Finding the right counsellor to work with is very important, with this in mind I am happy to have an initial 20 minute telephone conversation to answer any questions you may have regarding counselling.
