A recent survey by the Mental Health Foundation found that 65% of people had experienced a mental health problem. If you are feeling mental distress, you are not alone.
I can help with a wide range of problems including anxiety and depression or other mental health diagnoses (including self harm and suicide), alcohol and drugs, relationship problems, couples counselling, physical and emotional abuse, parenting coaching, eating disorders.
I approach problems with empathy and compassion, honestly and without judgment.
I aim to guide you through the complexities of life and provide you with tools to improve your mental well-being.
I live in a wonderful rural area and can offer Walk-Talk therapy to take advantage of our beautiful surroundings and the positive impact being outdoors in nature can have on your mental health.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a retired solicitor and was accredited by the Law Society as a specialist in mental health, children and family law. The firm I set up in 1997 is one of the largest legal aid firms in the UK. I have worked with clients in the community and in hospitals and other institutional settings. My fields of expertise were acting for adults and children with mental health problems in child and family cases and mental health review tribunals.
I have worked as a trainer and educator for organisations supporting the homeless, an anti-bullying group, people with an intellectual disability, victims of domestic abuse and prisoner-victim mediation (restorative justice)
I qualified as a counsellor in 2006 with a BACP accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Sheffield Hallam University. I have experience across many varied adult mental health issues, having worked in GP surgeries, drug and alcohol services, for MIND and in private practice. I also have a Couples Counselling qualification and a Certificate in Mediation.
