Psychotherapist, Counsellor & Supervisor. UKCP & RSPP Member

About me

My clients describe me as supportive and easy  to talk to. As a counsellor with over 20 years experience I know that at times life can feel confusing and distressing. I have helped previous clients to address their concerns in a supportive and practical way. Talking to a counsellor  in a safe and confidential environment can assist you to understand what is happening, explore new ways of working and overall help you to improve your situation and emotional health. I work with a range of issues including stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and have specialised in working with ill-health, loss and bereavement.

About me

I am a registered  member of the  United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP) and affiliated to the Regents School of Psychotherapy and Psychology.  I hold accredited qualifications in Counselling, Psychotherapy& Supervision.

Based in Alresford North East Hampshire in a tranquil location and within easy access of  Alton,  Fleet, Odiham,  Petersfield,  Southampton and Winchester.

I offer both short and long term work with appointments during the day and evening, in person or via remote working.

If you are unsure if counselling is for you I invite you to phone  me  for a free telephone consultation. Between us we can then decide what will be the best course of action.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 20 years experience working in private practice, the NHS, the charitable sector and further education.

I came to counselling & psychotherapy after an initial career in nursing and social work which then inspired me to train as a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. As a senior manager I have led teams of therapists in both adult and children’s hospices for many years, worked for 7 years as a GP surgery-based counsellor in Primary Care alongside my private practice. In addition to this I have for many years developed and delivered training courses for counsellors, volunteers and health care professionals. I also work as a supervisor with a Hampshire based bereavement charity.
