About me

About me:

Since 2015, I have gained much experience in bereavement counselling volunteering for the UK's largest bereavement charity. I counselled men and women who found life very traumatic after the death of a special person. Listening closely to such individuals, I supported them closely along their journey to 'recovery' where they could begin to revive their wellbeing, interests,  and even simple 'pleasure' observing nature.

Many years in education, both teaching and studying, I have always enjoyed working in situations where I felt I had the opportunity of making a positive difference to lives.  A keen traveller, I have always enjoyed diversity amongst people and context.

Get started with counselling through contacting me:

You now know a little about me, but do you know how you're going to make contact with me? Firstly, remove your fear or embarassment, especially if this is the first time you've approached a counsellor for support. I'm warm and understanding. Ring/text me at 07818 403385 or click here to send me an email.

Once I hear from you, I can arrange the initial session with you and you can tell me what you're looking to get out of counselling. You can instruct me if you'd prefer daytime or early evening visits. I will let you know where I'm based, provide full location instructions, and inform you of the free parking I provide on my forecourt.

Me - as your counsellor:

My service is focused primarily on counselling adults who are challenged in life by serious loss e.g bereavement - divorce - job redundancy.

Peaceful and confidential, my counselling practice is based in a conservatory room that may be shaded by blinds or open to a relaxing garden view. Daytime visits from 10 am or evening visits (commencing from 5-7pm ) are available. I allocate an hour per client visit which includes 50 minutes in counselling therapy.

Most importantly, while everything you speak about will be held in confidence, my approach is intentionally non-judgemental.  In this way, I hope you will feel able to express your feelings and improve your strength to cope with life’s obstacles - and even regain life’s joys.

Training, qualifications & experience

I became fully trained and successfully qualified as a BACP Integrative Counsellor via the Iron Mill College, Exeter on 5 November 2018.

I achieved the Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling, having successfully passed 400 hours of Skills, Theory and Practice on this BACP accredited course entitled An Integrative Approach to Counselling Theory and Practice.

BACP, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, is the professional association for members of the counselling professions in the UK.

As a Registered Member of the BACP Register, I have demonstrated the high standards of proficiency, professionalism and ethical practice that the BACP requires of the counsellors that have gained registration. I aim to reflect these standards on an ongoing basis with each of my counselling clients.

As an Integrative Counsellor, I have gained knowledge and experience of using several different counselling approaches which I find as a useful resource to meet the particular needs of individual clients.

Person-centred therapy, also known as person-centred or client-centred counselling, is a humanistic approach that I employ most often with my clients. The reason I find this approach most useful is that it deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously, rather than me trying to interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas.
