I currently offer counselling in person at my office in Winchester city centre, or online, via Zoom. 

For sessions in person, I have procedures in place to minimise the risk of Covid transmission. 

About me and my therapy practice

I have worked as a counsellor in Watford, and more recently Winchester over a number of years, as well as online. Prior to this I had some experience conducting annual reviews of the efficacy of therapeutic communities around the UK.

I have experience in working with a wide range of issues with clients, although I am particularly passionate about working with clients who:

  • experienced early attachment disruption
  • experienced/experiencing trauma or abuse, including transgenerational/childhood/adulthood trauma
  • have a personality disorder diagnosis
  • experience dissociation
  • are experiencing self harm or suicidal feelings, thoughts, or impulses

My initial training (BA degree) was in integrative counselling, which means I have experience of working in a variety of ways with clients, from traditional talking therapy to more creative ways of exploring issues such as art, sand tray, or drama techniques. I also draw on CBT and DBT skills, as well as mindfulness. 

I have subsequently trained in the CAMS (Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality) Framework, completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Trauma Studies, and a Certificate in Internal Family Systems therapy. 

I am currently working towards further qualifications in Transactional Analysis, and Complex Trauma. I also participate in regular continuing professional development workshops in a variety of areas to enhance my therapeutic work with clients.
