About me and my therapy practice

I have been working with people experiencing unhappiness in all sorts of ways for many years and never yet come across anyone who's distress or anxiety or sadness didn't make sense once we had talked about it for a while. Every individual is different and special in my book but has in common the need to be heard, recognised, valued and understood. As a person-centred counsellor those four things are at the heart of my practice. Whatever your concern or difficulty, sharing what is on your mind and in your heart in a safe space is the start of healing and self acceptance. I work online and by phone. 

I have over thirty five years experience in working with people as a psychiatric nurse, community mental health worker and psychotherapist. and met people with pretty much every kind of concern.  I also lecture in Person-Centred Counselling at The Metanoia Institute.

I find nothing more satisfying than building a working relationship that feels safe and gives you the confidence to explore the issues that are troubling you. Coming into counselling is such a big threshold to cross and can be very anxiety provoking in itself. Let's get together for a conversation and see how we can help you move forward.
