About me

We’re all human and life is filled with many expectations and problems placed upon us by others, ourselves and some we have no control over. These can range in severity and intensity. Sometimes traumas from our past can effect our present and the issues we face now can effect our futures. Together we’ll discover and plan a path forward.

I offer counselling sessions for individuals, couples, families and young adults all from my private practice in Alton, Hampshire.

You will find more in-depth information on my website, so please take a moment when you have time to have a look.

Training, qualifications & experience

Foundation degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis with Distinction

I have worked with clients from all walks of life. This has provided me with a deep insight and a practical view of the problems that people are facing in historic and current times. Whether it is depression due to lack of respect and recognition at work, personal health, death of a close family member, emotional distress due to separation, loss of a job, or any other issues that is affecting your every day life.

Because the range of challenges that people face in their lives is so diverse, I take an integrated approach to counselling – drawing on humanistic, person centred, psychodynamic and CBT theories. I see the counselling process as collaborative – we will work together to establish your aims and objectives and build a plan to not only achieve them but gain the tools to overcome problems you’ll face in the future.

Aside from my private practice, I have been working within the NHS Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust since 2009 as the lead counsellor and manager of voluntary counselling team for cancer services and palliative care. As part of my role as Lead Counsellor I manage a team of counsellors throughout our 3 Hospitals. I also run psychological skills training days for Doctors, Nurses and Consultants that work within Cancer and Palliative Care Services for the Trust.
