About me

Counselling is an investment in ourselves, with my role being to support you through a difficult time, or a juncture in life where you feel the need for change.

With experience of short-term counselling* and longer-term therapy across various respected organisations and charities, I offer skills and support in finding a way forward for those of us struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem and relationship problems.

Having said this, I appreciate the decision to share our personal difficulties can make us feel incredibly vulnerable and require a great deal of courage. With this in mind, I offer a calm, stable and unbiased environment, where we can work at a pace that respects your readiness to share.

In our opening sessions, it is likely we would take a closer look at parts of your life that are upsetting or proving a struggle. From there, I would support you in identifying some meaningful goals, before we begin the steps in moving towards them.

Note: My recent article, 'Short-term counselling: A reassuring route for the undecided', summarises some advantages of working in the way mentioned above. A link to the article can be found at the foot of this page.

Working considerately and confidentially

From a discreet location in St Neots town centre, my work is underpinned by the standards and principles of the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling and Psychotherapy, a code to ensure clients receive the safety, standards and service they deserve. High on this list, is the protection of your confidentiality; your trust in me being the foundation for a fruitful counsellor-client relationship.

Working with young people (11 years +)

Through my previous profession as a school teacher and experience as a youth counsellor, I have developed a sound appreciation of the worries a young person can experience, including those related to cyber-bullying, social media and internet content.  Helping a young person to explore their difficulties, evaluate their options and come to their own decision is the cornerstone of my approach; something that can empower and foster independence long after our work has finished.

How to get in touch

If you would like to gain a clearer idea of how we might work together and whether this path could be for you, feel free to call or e-mail - we can have an informal chat or organise a convenient time for a 30 minute no-obligation consultation at my practice (at a cost of £10).

A consultation is an opportunity for us to meet, for you to take a look at the environment, discuss your hopes for any such work and, ultimately, gauge whether you'd like to go ahead. If it proves more convenient, I offer a telephone or Skype consultation (for no fee).
