About me and my therapy practice

I help people to shape their perspective and outlook to achieve a healthier balanced life. Whether it is your career, your relationships, or anything else that is important to you, I will help you develop the skills to effectively deal with the challenges and emotional situations that are encountered in life that challenge our daily functioning and general outlook.

I absolutely love the work I do, working empathically and collaboratively with people from all levels of society to help overcome their issues. I work non-judgmentally, supporting you to take control of your journey towards new beginnings.

I am a Relate trained couple counsellor, and I can structure the work to help improve levels of communication and intimacy, to encourage a healthier bond in marriage and relationships.

Adult relationship counselling can also beneficially aid support through the challenges of divorce and separation. Effective communication is paramount, especially when emotions are running high to help uncover the path to autonomy and self-rediscovery to enable a smoother transition.

Practice description

I work face to face with individuals and couples on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the beautiful village of Kingsclere at the village club. This location comfortably services Basingstoke, Newbury and Winchester. Free parking is available at Kingsclere Bowling Club which is a 3-minute walk away.

Webcam and telephone counselling is an excellent alternative of connecting to counselling for those who are unable to attend face-to-face and prefer to work from the convenience of their home environment.

Please ensure when working from home your chosen surrounding is safe and secure to enable the process to be a private and confidential space for the duration of each session.

I have recently introduced 'Walk and Talk' counselling at the Hockey Centre in Henwick, the Discovery Centre in Thatcham and Green Common please contact me if you are interested or visit my website for further details.

Walk and talk is an effective way of utilising therapy in a neutral environment incorporating gentle walking exercise to help promote those good endorphins, whilst working through problems.

My first session

I charge £20 per individual for assessments due to my in-depth process to ensure that I am the right counsellor for your needs.  The process lasts approx. 30-minutes. 

Weekly individual sessions are recommended for the first six sessions.  When working with couples I usually suggest fortnightly sessions. However, terms are agreed together with the client at commencement of the journey.  

Individual session 50-minutes and couple counselling lasts 1-hour. Our first counselling session is a continuation of the assessment to establish more detail of what is going on for the client(s).  

My emphasis is to work relationally and collaboratively without judgment or hierarchy. Our partnership is seen as equal with the client being the true expert of themselves. I am here to help, support and guide you through the challenges of change.
