About me and my therapy practice

I understand that sometimes life can be difficult and it can be hard to know where to turn for support. My aim is to provide you with a safe, welcoming and private space where you can explore your feelings and emotions without fear of judgement.

Practice description

I have been a counsellor for over 10 years. My initial training as a counsellor included Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Transpersonal approaches amongst others, and I have continued to learn new theories and ways of working in my continued studies. This is reflected in my approach to working with clients, where I can draw on different ideas depending on the nature of the client’s needs and what they are choosing to focus on.

I am currently working online only. When face-to-face sessions resume, I practice from a clinic room in Melksham and a comfortable, private therapy room in my home in Westbury. 

My first session

I offer a free online or telephone session in the first instance so you can discuss your needs and ask any questions. We can then book your first session.
