I am a specialist bereavement counsellor with an area of expertise and passion in working with bereaved parents who have lost a baby or a child either through elective termination, miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death or the loss of a child, however short or long their lives were. I also work with different losses, bereavement and terminal illness.
I offer specialist bereavement counselling for bereaved parents (and grandparents) to help you work through the grieving process after the loss of your baby or child. I have several years of experience working in this area and am currently also working as a specialist bereavement midwife counsellor at a local hospital. I also offer counselling at a local cancer unit and a children’s hospice.
I also work with the feelings of loss and grief which may result from fertility issues.
I also offer bereavement counselling for the loss of a loved one (spouse, sibling, parent, friend) and for those affected by terminal illness.
My private practice is in Woking.
