About me

I am a National Counselling Society accredited Counsellor with a private practice in Kilcot, which is near Newent and Ross-on-Wye. I offer counselling for anxiety, stress, fear, anger, depression, low-confidence and self-esteem, loss, loneliness, relationship issues etc and to help those who have suffered from emotional and/or physical abuse.

I believe that there are times when you need a therapist to do more than just listen, you need some guidance, some support, and help finding your own strength.

I will help you to explore and express your feelings in a safe, confidential and supportive way. While doing this we will, together, develop strategies to manage current difficulties while simultaneously releasing pain from the recent, or even very distant, past.

As well as Emotional Therapeutic Counselling we can, if you like, use yoga techniques, (I am fully qualified) such as breathing, as many of these are simple yet bring great relief.

When appropriate I also draw on my background as part of a psychiatric team in a hospital including a drug and alcohol addiction unit and later carrying out research into mental health (public attitudes in particular) for the World Health Authority. You will be in safe and caring hands.

Training, qualifications & experience

Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling Diploma

I have many years experience of helping people, mostly with relief from anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, anger issues and suchlike.  Now I have the knowledge and experience to help with much more.

Having also studied Yoga Psychology I use this when a Client finds it the most appealing choice. It is an approach that rather than dealing head-on with the problems simply involves breathing practices, making sounds (for instance humming like a bee or a soft snoring sound), particular postures, many, many very different relaxation techniques and, if liked, concentration and meditation.

Further information

I believe that some problems require more than one kind of approach and I would be happy to suggest other kinds of therapy, for instance, research indicates that people suffering from PTSD often respond much better if also receiving physical therapy.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
