About me

As a qualified counsellor, all my focus is on helping adults and young people aged 11-18 find and own their path in life. Throughout my career, I have sought to support others, helping make their desire to change tangible, and explore the various options open to them. This is all borne out of recognising that all of our life experiences are unique – there is no right or wrong – but sometimes we need the time and space and trust to talk about these experiences.

I am a qualified Humanistic Gestalt counsellor and trained in Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET). As an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy, I abide by and live within their ethical framework.

Having worked as an Emotional Literacy Support for 10 years, I understand the many challenges young people face. Furthermore, I am a volunteer with a charity and the NHS providing support to adults with addiction issues, work that I am incredibly proud to be involved with.

I work in a purpose-built studio, set in a quiet rural location. It has been designed specifically to create the right counselling environment. It is located 2 miles from the village of Wickham, and in easy reach from Fareham, Portsmouth and Southampton.

I would be delighted to help you – please do contact me either by phone or email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified at Diploma level in Humanistic Gestalt counselling and I am currently studying to teach counselling at my local college.

I currently support a charity working with young people providing counselling and recently volunteered with the NHS working with adults experiencing drug and alcohol issues.
