About me

A very warm welcome to you and thank you for accessing my details.

Choosing a Therapist

To help and see if I am the right person to offer you the support you need, I offer a free, introductory, twenty minute telephone consultation. If you would like to proceed we will arrange a convenient time for a first session. I can offer you a safe, confidential, comfortable counselling space to enable you to talk about what you are finding difficult at the moment. Sometimes if the words are just not there, we can use creative tools to explore what is happening. The choice is always yours.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. In addition to obtaining my general adult counselling qualification I have undertaken further training in the following:
- Working with the bereaved (Cruse Bereavement Care)
- Counselling skills with children using the arts (Institute for Art and Therapy in Education, Islington)
- Psychotherapeutic counselling with children and young people (Ocean Counselling Training, LLP, Rochester)

My private practice is located in Bagshot within easy reach of the M3, junction 3, and next to Bagshot train station. Off road parking is available.

I offer short and long term therapy to adults, children and young people. I balance this whilst working in a local secondary school as a School Counsellor.

How can counselling help?

I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. This means that I can offer you an empathic, non-judgemental, confidential counselling relationship where I will help support you to achieve your unique potential, empowering you to help make change happen through looking at your self development and your ability to make different choices. We will gently explore your feelings and emotions and help you to gain a greater understanding of yourself.
