About me

I am a qualified and experienced CBT counsellor. I also pull upon the Person Centred approach which is tailored to the individual that I am working with. I work in a way whereas we would look at your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how they affect the way in which you live your life

I am able to offer a confidential and safe environment to explore how you are feeling and what is happening for you right now in your life.

I work on a short to long term basis, this is all in accordance with the individual needs.

Together I hope we can develop new ways of coping with what you are experiencing.

Twenty years ago I started working in the caring profession working alongside young people who needed support to live independently. Since then I have worked in many settings with a diverse range of people.

I worked within a school setting for four years as a school counsellor with children from the ages of three to nineteen.

I now work in private practise with adults, children and young people.

I have experience of counselling a wide range of people. From those with addiction problems and their families to working with young people who are trying to find their way in life. I have experience of working with adults who want to address their inner child and past experiences to uncover what is going on for them in the here and now. Also a good understanding of working with those experiencing eating disorders.

We can talk and be as creative as you like within the sessions.

I have recently completed a Diploma in Passionate Supervision and will continue to study supervision in CTSD in Bath as from February 2018.
