About me and my therapy practice

I am a accredited counsellor with the BACP, 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, three and a half years in a hospice for terminal illness, as well as  within a Christian counselling agency and my private practice. 

FREE INITIAL 20 MINUTE SESSION
It takes courage to seek help from someone, and selecting a counsellor 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 the veil of our material existence. On the other hand, they may make us question any existing beliefs we may have, and this may be distressing in itself.

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