About me

I am a qualified compassionate and empathic Counsellor, with a holistic approach, who has had many years experience in caring and supporting people of all ages. I believe that everyone should be treated as an individual, looking at the best, personal approach for you. Prior to becoming a counsellor I started my professional life as a Nurse and then moved into social care, to become a Senior Domestic Abuse / Homelessness Project Worker. I have worked with people who have had a wide range of physical / mental health and social care issues for over 28 years.

As a therapist, I am a bereavement and terminal illness speciailist, as well as working with, anxiety and panic attacks, domestic violence, trauma, all types of abuse, chronic illness, depression / mental health issues, spiritual / life meaning, autistic spectrum (ASD), family and relationship issues, life and work issues and all aspects of personal wellbeing. I also have many years of experience of working with spirituality and issues related to life-purpose.

I use an individualised, integrated approach to counselling, which means that I assess your own personal needs to find the right form of counselling for you. My specialties including: Person-Centred / Humanistic, Transpersonal, Existential, Gestalt Therapy and CBT. I strongly believe that every human being is unique, with different needs that need to be considered compassionately and without judgement. This is how I work with all my clients.

I also provide counselling and emotional support for various health and social care organisations such as YMCA and Victim Support, as well as some other private companies. I am currently also a Care and Support Manager for people with complex needs and Founding Director of Solace End of Life Support offering end of life and pre-bereavement support to clients and their families. I previously worked with the NHS and also with Woman's Trust and Women's Aid, St Josephs's Hospice (London), Marie Curie, and Macmillan Dove. Also East Thames Housing Association and several other Housing Associations and Domestic Violence projects I have my own private practice and I am fully insured with a current DBS clearance (previously CRB police check).

I am also a fully registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
