About me and my therapy practice

I qualified on a BACP Accredited course over 20 years ago and have extensive experience working with individuals, couples and young people. I offer short and long-term therapy.

In these extraordinary and uncertain times which we currently find ourselves in, I am working via video online or telephone. I have had many years’ experience working this way.

I believe passionately in our potential for growth and development from wherever our starting place.

I aim to develop a supportive relationship creating a safe space for exploring feelings, thoughts and experiences. I believe the therapeutic process can bring about insight and understanding, along with greater self-awareness and emotional growth, leading to more choices, achieving a greater sense of balance and fulfilment. I endeavour to build a relationship where you feel accepted for who you are.

Within my private practice I offer supervision and provide short term solution focussed counselling for local and national Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP)

I have extensive experience of working with young people and have worked as a counsellor in different Educational settings.

I also work part-time teaching on a BA (Hons) Counselling Degree. I have over ten years’ experience working with a variety of training providers tutoring counselling students.

I have special interest in families, having worked widely with mothers and babies in my role as a therapist. For ten years I worked as a licensed International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), supporting families. I have extensive experience as a trainer working for the NHS, children centres and private companies.
