About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor with a Person Centred Foundation.  This means that I can draw on different counselling techniques, whilst keeping you at the centre of our work. My approach to counselling is supportive, and non-judgmental. The process of counselling is confidential, and my role as your counsellor is to provide space and time for you to explore your concerns.

I have a particular interest in working creatively using metaphor, story telling and art. Working creatively can be helpful when trying to understand the root cause of Anxiety and Depression, as it can assist some clients  to bring feelings to the surface that may otherwise be difficult to verbalise.

Talking through issues and worries in a non-judgmental and empathic environment can be enough to facilitate change. I believe you have the answers, and I will be alongside you while you explore and make sense of what is worrying you.

In addition to my Private Practice I am a Counselling Lecturer and Course Manager at Bracknell College, Berkshire. I also offer personal development workshops and CPD in West Sussex.

I can offer Skype sessions if you are unable to come to my office
