About me and my therapy practice

Hi - I am an experienced Person-centred counsellor.

I have worked with a wide range of clients, of all ages - from teenagers to clients in their 70’s. I am experienced in counselling for loss and bereavement, self-esteem and confidence, anxiety, depression, relationship and other family related issues, stress and work related difficulties.

Being person-centred mean​s that the way I work, involves putting you at the very centre of the counselling process, so we will focus on what is important to you and what you want to achieve through counselling

As well as dealing with the wide range of issues above, I have a special interest in working with issues related to ‘loss’. This includes bereavement counselling, but also extends to clients who have experienced loss in other ways such as loss of career, friendship or personal identity. 

Coping with feelings of loss can be a very difficult & lonely process. These feelings can be triggered by life’s many challenges, including the ageing process, a deterioration in health or changes in lifestyle, career or family circumstances.

I offer a free, 30 minute initial consultation which can be done face to face or over the telephone if you prefer.

Counselling Experience

I am currently employed as a counsellor in a local authority, providing support to employees via occupational health.

Besides private practice, my counselling experience includes being a counsellor in a large Further Education College, a local University, a Community Counselling Service and a Family Counselling Centre.

In addition, I have worked as a counsellor in a hospice setting, counselling patients who have life-limiting illnesses and their families. 

I have a specialist Diploma in Grief and Bereavement Counselling & I am currently studying on a Pet Bereavement Counselling Certificate.
