About me and my therapy practice

When you are experiencing relationship issues, feeling low, stressed or anxious talking to a counsellor can really make a difference. I will listen closely and be sensitive to your needs focusing on the relationship between us.  Help with these difficulties can be achieved by a process of self-exploration and increased self-awareness safely held in an honest, predictable, sensitive and trusting counselling relationship. 

In our relationship, I will provide warmth, openness, empathy, trust and presence. With these qualities it is always my intention to hold a safe space for you to explore your inner experience without judgement and create the potential for you to feel more at ease.

I understand that deciding to see a counsellor can be a difficult process. You might be feeling uneasy, vulnerable, confused or overwhelmed I'm sensitive to this and easy to talk to. 

Please feel welcome to get in touch by phone or email to discuss any queries you may have about counselling with me. I offer a reduced fee introductory session costing £20 and lasting for one-hour.  If you are then happy to continue, we can arrange to meet on a more regular basis ideally weekly each session lasting for one-hour and costing £45.

I have specialist experience in counselling parents, carers, parents of highly sensitive children (HSC), young adults and highly sensitive people (HSP).  I have been a volunteer counsellor for Counselling for Carers since 2017.  In 2014 I became a published author of a collection of books to help understand highly sensitive children and to support them along with their parents, family, friends and carers.  

I have a broad and varied experience of life; born and brought up on a small dairy farm in Shropshire, previously worked in wine retail, catering and the financial services industry. Since 2006 I have been privileged to be the primary carer for my two lovely daughters.
