About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP-accredited counsellor and offer a safe, confidential setting for you to talk about what is causing you distress.  I will listen to you and not judge you, helping you gain insights and explore more helpful ways of looking at things. 
I have lived and worked in the Far East and mainland Europe and can relate with clients going through similar transitions.

 MY COUNSELLING EXPERIENCE includes over 2 years within the NHS, and 5 years elsewhere (hospice, community counselling service, EAP and my private practice). 

FREE INITIAL 20 MINUTE SESSION
It takes courage to seek help from someone, and can be daunting. This is an online or phone consultation  without obligation. 

MY PRACTICE - As an integrative counsellor, I draw from a variety of counselling models, including Mindfulness Based Stress Relief,   to best serve your unique life journey.  

Sometimes, social and ethnic cues you learnt growing up may  affect your relationships and current well-being, and these may be taken into account. 

If you find it helpful, we can also explore spirituality and faith. Painful present-day realities may prompt us to look beyond our material existence, or to find inner strength and wisdom.  

​I am happy to counsel clients of all faiths, or none.
