About me

I provide short or long term therapy, with individuals, couples, and organisations.  I have thirty years' experience of working with both personal and work related issues, particularly dealing with somatic distress and anxiety and stress. Many people come for counselling when there is stress in important relationships, and our relational patterns are essential to being healthy and balanced in life. Stress and difficulties, changes and transitions in our own lives or in the lives of important people in our lives can cause sleep, eating or other disruption in your coping behaviours.

An Integrative practitioner, I am a relational counsellor, working through your present difficulties to develop your insight, self awareness and self efficacy.

An initial session allows us to decide whether we can work together and if not I will aim to refer you elsewhere.  I offer mediation, debriefing and training in addition.

I believe that spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual fulfilment are equally important and counselling should bring you back into a healthier balance.

Research area covered:

  • neurobiological change and transformation in individuals,
  • community and organisational communications
  • understanding control behaviours (eg. addictive patterns) in relation to anxiety.and trauma

I am  also a clinical supervisor to both qualified and trainee counsellors, either individually or in groups..

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Registered senior accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
  • Accredited as a counsellor and supervisor (both individuals and groups)
  • Research Masters Degree - understanding transformation and learning in adults

I have developed training programmes to national training standards for over 25 years and designed and delivered bespoke training for public and private organisational teams.

I designed and delivered group programmes for women affected by domestic abuse and violence, with many clients progressing into independence financially emotionally as well as finding healthier new relationships for themselves.

My private practice over 30 years has allowed me to develop approaches to counselling , responding to client's realities, whether that is working with dreams, narrative, writing or symbols.

Further information

Please feel free to contact me by email or telephone to discuss any questions you may have. If you do arrange an initial appointment, this does not commit you to any further sessions and this is an initial meeting to explore whether I am the right person for you.

If I do not think we will work well together, I am happy to suggest other practitioners or organisations that may be more helpful.
