Whether you are navigating personal struggles, relationship issues, or seeking guidance for your child, I am here to help you foster resilience, self-awareness, and positive change. Together, we can embark on a therapeutic journey that empowers you to overcome obstacles, develop coping strategies, and build a foundation for lasting well-being. Take the first step towards a brighter future – I would be honoured to be your ally in this transformative process.

Training, qualifications & experience

Bristol University: MSc. Counselling – Training and Supervision

Reading University; Dip. Counselling and Guidance

Birmingham University: Cert.Ed.

In the 40 years that I have been a counsellor, I have explored many different humanistic models of therapy, and some of which, were cognitive and behavioural, finding some aspects of the latter to be very useful. However, my person centred philosophy relating to individuals has prevailed, and I am always mindful of ensuring that the core conditions are present throughout my counselling sessions. My theoretical model for 1:1 therapy, therefore, is Humanistic and Integrative, with my core philosophy being person centred.
