I am a qualified and accredited counsellor who has twenty years experience in a variety of settings, notably working for many years in University settings but also with experience of work within the NHS and charitable organisations. I gained a Masters degree in counselling in 2007 and have engaged in continuous professional development throughout my years of practice.
People who work with me can present with all kinds of concerns. Sometimes they are consciously affected by something bad that has happened which they need to process, either recently or in the past; other times people may experience a chronic low mood or anxiety which seeps into every aspect of their living and which they are at a loss to understand. Central to my work is the counselling relationship and using this as a vehicle to enable individuals to make changes, move on from traumatic experiences, cope with relationship problems and arrive at a better relationship with life and the self. Respect and empathy are vital to this and I will work at your pace and encourage you to be as open as you are able to be in order to gain the most from the experience.
As a BACP accredited counsellor I am respectful of all issues of diversity and inclusivity, as well as committed to ensuring the highest level of good practice.
I have an eclectic counselling background with knowledge of CBT, humanistic and solution focussed counselling, which I draw on particularly in time limited counselling.
I work on a one session per week basis

At present work is online from my private residential setting.
I offer both brief and longer term counselling and am a BACP accredited counsellor as well as a BPC accredited DIT {Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy) practitioner. Open ended counselling is interpersonal in nature and seeks to provide relief and bring about improvements through the process of talking over the matters which are too often left unsaid. It pays attention to past experience and the significance of unconscious feeling whilst being rooted in the present and committed to enhancing future experience. DIT is a short term therapy which views an individual’s difficulties through the lens of relationships. It is one of only five therapies approved by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence} for addressing symptoms of depression and anxiety. It is delivered over 16 sessions so is structured and time-limited.
I will provide you with a written agreement if you choose to engage with me for counselling and will also provide information on how I collect process or store your personal information in line with Data Protection requirements
