About me and my therapy practice

The way I work as a counsellor is to create an environment that encourages growth through experiencing a supportive, non-judgemental relationship, facilitating the person’s greater awareness and connection to self.  I am a compassionate and intuitive therapist, working at the client’s pace, enabling the client to find their way, make decisions and/or changes with confidence.  Each person is unique and although people have similar life experiences, I listen with curiosity to fully understand how you as an individual experience your life.  I offer counselling for various issues but specialise and have extensive experience in bereavement counselling and working with people suffering from life limiting illness.  

Practice description

I am a Person Centred Counsellor in Portsmouth and a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychtherapist offering counselling to individuals. I started my career as a volunteer at a local bereavement service, so have extensive experience in bereavement, grief counselling and life limiting illness.  I currently work with NHS staff and EAP to some local teaching staff.  

My first session

At your first session, I complete a short assessment.  This helps me discover what your needs are and whether I am a suitable counsellor for you.  I will provide you with information and details as to how I work, what you might expect from the sessions and how we will work together.  It is an opportunity for you to discover whether you feel at ease with me and if counselling might be useful for you.
