About me

Whatever your needs, I am here not only to listen, empathise and support but also to offer you new perspectives which will enable you to find a way forward.

Prior to setting up in Private Practice and founding my agency, the Well Being Therapy Centre, in 2011, I worked for the NHS for over 13 years. Having been a GP Practice Counsellor, I have worked with hundreds of people suffering from problems in all areas, including depression, anxiety, stress, family and relationship problems, bereavement and other losses, workplace issues, infertility, coping with illness, and childhood trauma and abuse.

It has been very rewarding for me over the years to see how people who are open to change and willing to take responsibility for their own wellbeing can, with the help of therapy, begin to turn their lives around.

With over twenty years’ experience in Psychodynamic Counselling, I have come to understand how we develop as individuals, and how our earliest experiences can shape the way we go on dealing with life. This particularly affects our relationships, and I have seen how the ways in which we connect with those around us, as well as the relationship we have with ourselves, can be so easily damaged by the problems we encountered in the past. For this reason the approach I take looks at both the internal and external factors which might be making a person stressed, anxious or depressed. I have also trained in a unique spiritual counselling programme which combines counselling with relaxation and meditation practices to offer bespoke strategies for anyone dealing with stress or seeking to find deeper meaning in life.

My consulting room is a comfortable room with its own entrance, adjacent to my home in Great Linford, a very tranquil area of Milton Keynes.

On the basis of my experience I am also happy to offer therapy to trainee counsellors and one-to-one supervision to qualified counsellors.

I look forward to working with you!
