About me and my therapy practice
Welcome. I am BACP Registered member who is empathetic, non-judgemental, kind, and easy to talk to. Our confidential sessions will provide space to think things through and will help you to make choices with confidence. The therapeutic relationship between us will enable you to make progress through whatever is troubling you. I have a gentle humour and relaxed manner which I hope will quickly put you at ease. We will travel at your pace, but without shying away from difficult issues.
My counselling experience includes working with many complex issues including:
Abuse, bereavement, carers concerns, cognitive decline, cross-cultural challenges, depression, existential crisis, ex-pat issues, faith, family concerns, fragile mental health, identity issues, loss, parenting, relationships, substance misuse, thoughts of suicide and trauma.
You can contact me by email or by leaving a message on my answer machine. We will arrange a time to chat on the phone to discuss your needs and decide whether we can work well together.
I offer Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday day-time appointments. Other times by arrangement. I can be flexible for shift-workers and carers.
I offer counselling in my garden room, (CM9) or in Lexden (CO3)
I can offer in person or online counselling via Teams or Zoom etc. Telephone appointments are also possible. I typically offer six weekly therapy sessions, which can be extended by arrangement.
