I use a bespoke, integrative approach which means I will tailor the therapy collaboratively with you to meet your specific needs. I will offer validation of where you are in your life now and the journey you have been on so far. I will value you and your experience whilst at the same time help you bring about any changes you are looking for - inwardly, outwardly or both. I am an experienced psychotherapist who will provide you with a safe and compassionate therapeutic process. I recognise the need for a holistic perspective which takes into account the connection between mind and body and the impact of your environmental, social and circumstantial context.
I believe being a woman in our society can be extremely difficult at times and that each woman's experience is unique to her. Within this we can work on a range of issues together some of which may be included in the list below. However, not all problems have a label, so please still feel free to get in touch with your enquiry even if it is not listed and we can take it from there. If you'd like to know a little more about me and how I work then please take a good look at my website.
Counselling in the Countryside
If you love being outdoors or just feel you would benefit from the opportunity of therapy in the countryside then this could be the way forward for you. There is more information about this on my website.
Currently I am seeing clients in-person by having outdoor sessions - Counselling in the Countryside - to ensure safety as far as possible. I am also offering online video and telephone sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience

Working with women aged 18 - 80, I have successfully helped my clients address a wide range of concerns through Hallam Caring Services, the University of Sheffield Counselling Service, Eva Therapy Service and Sheffield Woman to Woman Counselling and Psychotherapy. Here I have specialised in using a bespoke, integrative and holistic approach with women which is specifically tailored to meet their individual requirements.
My previous academic career, which I conducted part-time during my thirties, was in Landscape Studies:- Natural and Human Environments BSc (Hons) and Landscape Archaeology MA. These help to inform my approach to Counselling in the Countryside and Landscape Therapy which is enhanced by my own ongoing interest and active engagement with it.
