About me and my therapy practice

Counselling can help us to understand & process difficult feelings, survive & move on from painful life situations & past-hurts, build our sense of self-worth & help us to accept & value ourselves. I'm a person-centred counsellor with 11 years of NHS counselling experience & 25 years working more generally in the health field. 

In my private practice I work with a wide range of issues linked to relationships, family, supporting young people, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress, illness, loss & bereavement, sexual abuse and assault, & workplace issues. As an NHS counsellor I specialise in sexuality, gender & sexual health.

I've also worked with students within a university counselling service & with carers within a carer's support project. I have a depth of experience in working with all genders including working with young people & older adults.

Please contact me if you have questions or would like more info about my practice.

"When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle & sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination & healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another." - Carl R. Rogers
