About me

With over 15 years experience, I believe that counselling can help people make the changes they need to live a happier and more fulfilling life. I've worked in family centres, women's refuge centres and am now working in private practice.

I provide non-judgemental counselling focused on each client's individual needs. This means I work at the client's own pace to help them to resolve any conflicts in their lives and empower them to be more comfortable with themselves.

About Me:
Having been through many changes in my working career prior to starting out as a counsellor, I understand how difficult it is for those facing the stressful challenge of organisational change in the workplace. I initially decided to train as a counsellor in order to provide much needed support to people facing the continuing possibility of redundancy but have found myself working with a significantly broader range of issues since.

My Practice (Chaldon Counselling):
Counselling takes place in a safe and comfortable residential environment where parking is freely available. Counselling can be either short-term (usually 6-12 sessions) or longer term, depending upon each client's needs.

I offer an initial consultantation as an opportunity to meet and discuss the client's needs in counselling.

As a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am committed to working within their ethical guidelines.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Humanistic Counselling (1995)

Since qualifying, I have integrated a variety of techniques into my practice from counselling models such as Transactional Analysis and Gestalt as well as some Psychodynamic theory. This means that I can use a great deal of flexibility in working with my clients.

In particular, I am experienced in working with the following:

- Relationship problems (individuals and couples)
- Career counselling and work related issues
- Loss, grief and bereavement
- Separation and divorce
- Serious illness
- Depression
- Stress
- Anxiety
- Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
- Anger management
- Addiction and dependency
