About me

I have a Professional Diploma in Psychotheraputic Counselling and Certified as a Hypnotherapist. My background is in Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting.

My belief is that although we all encounter life difficulties which we generally manage well, at times we may need a little extra help.Counselling is an opportunity to talk and be listened to in a safe confidential environment, allowing you to share your thoughts and feelings at a comfortable pace without being judged.

I use a variety of approaches starting with an inital assessment to understand your difficulties and expectations. An agreed shared contract is then signed stating times,cancellations, fees, boundaries and confidentiality. Starting with the present difficulty, once comfortable we can explore and reflect on past life and relationships, followed by working towards the changes you feel are important.

For the past 3 years I have volunteered at the Trust House Reading who support adults and children who have been affected by rape and sexual abuse, historic or recent. I am trained in the Phased-Orientated Trauma Model and continue to receive regular training.
