About me

  • Hallo and welcome to my service. I am a trained and registered¬† Person-Centred Counsellor and previously worked for 35 years in the NHS.
  • I offer a place and time that is private and dedicated to you. It can be hard to begin to talk about very personal feelings and events - but I hope that you will feel comfortable and supported by me, whatever you wish to explore about you and your life.
  • We start by making an agreement about how we are going to work together and then we check how we are doing after an agreed number of sessions, so that we stay focussed.Sometimes this work can be hard, and I encourage you to "stick with it" for at least three sessions.
  • I look forward to meeting you.


Training, qualifications & experience

  • I take both individuals and couples for counselling. It is my practice to meet couples on a fortnightly basis for a fixed number of sessions.However I see individuals weekly, initially for an agreed number of sessions, with a built-in review. All work is undertaken following mutual agreement.
  • I am retired after many years experience in the NHS - and have now been counselling for 8 years, in various settings.
  • I have a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and a Certificate following a year's training in Transactional Analysis.
  • I have a Certificate in Couple Counselling.
  • I have many interests and hobbies.
  • I am looking forward to meeting you.
