About me

So, How Are You?

Constantly busy mind? Often anxious or depressed? Overwhelmed? Feeling that you can’t cope or life feels out of control? At times we all face situations or challenges in life which we can find distressing, or that leave us feeling unable to cope. It takes courage to make the decision to pause, breathe and talk. It takes courage to decide to do life differently.

Hello and Welcome to Space For You

Everyone will tell you what they think and offer their own advice to you, but do they really listen to you? To truly be heard and to explore whatever is happening for you right now, is what makes the difference between staying as you are or getting to know and understand yourself and doing life differently.

I believe the answer is in pausing and talking, with the entire focus on you – just you- and that was my motivation for establishing Space For You

A Bit About Me

I’m originally from the South Island of New Zealand.

Early on I developed an interest in natural and alternative ways to better health and travelled extensively in South-East Asia, India and Nepal.

I qualified as an Integrative Counsellor 20 years ago and in that time I have worked with both adults and children in a range of settings, both voluntary & paid. As well as seeing clients privately I work part time with the Aquilis Counselling Service at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth and also as an Independent Advocate for the charity Choices Advocacy.

In 2016 I trained as a relaxation and mindfulness teacher and utilise these techniques in my role as a counsellor.

Space For You is a culmination of much personal learning and exploration on both a professional and a personal level.To broaden my skills and increase the range of ways to support those who come to Space For You, I continually undertake professional development.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work in accordance with their ethical framework.
