About me and my therapy practice

In order to keep my clients and myself safe in the current Covid19 situation, I am providing virtual therapy via Skype or Zoom - or telephone counselling for those who prefer.

Do you need help to resolve life problems or work choices? 

Feeling down, conflicted, constantly on edge and unable to make clear decisions? 

I have 20 years experience as a professional Counsellor together with ten years as a qualified Clinical Supervisor, Mediator and LINK Barnardos trained Adoption Focused Counsellor.

I began my career as a trained bereavment counsellor for Cruse Bereavement Services and also provided bereavement support for patients and families at local Hospice.  Beside this work I provided counselling support as an EAP telephone counsellor.

Alongside my private practice,  my main area of work for the past 15 years has been in the provision of Counselling,  Clinical Supervision and Mediation,  for NHS staff at a local hospital.  Recently I also returned to the voluntary sector as a Macmillan Counsellor.

Since I qualified in Humanistic Integrative Counselling in 2002 I have worked consistently and extensively in providing help to many people to cope with life challenges, helping them develop a better sense of self, increased confidence, self-awareness and encouragement toward a more meaningful life.

I love my profession.  It has afforded a rich wealth of experience which compliments the therapy I provide for my clients.

My work with many clients has also taught me that we are all fragile human beings but the possibility to change is immense.

Practice description


My Humanistic Integrative training,  plus a wide experience as a therapist has equipped me with the skills to provide effective short term and long term counselling,  for couples and individuals, in confidence and safety.



My first session


At our initial meeting we will explore your concerns and source the most effective way to help support you through our ongoing work together.  We will usually agree the number of sessions required.

Some circumstances may require longer-term counselling but generally, successful results are achieved with short-term counselling, (up to 6-8 sessions).

My way of working is to enable you - not just for the duration of our sessions, but to help you open up your capacity to resource yourself for your future.

If I cannot help you I will endeavour to refer you to someone who can.

About me and my therapy practice

Please note that in order to keep us all safe in the Covid19 situation; I am currently providing Counselling and Clinical  Supervision via the use of virtual platforms, or telephone counselling only. 

I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor working from the Person Centered foundation of Core Conditions.  I have 20 years experience of  working with adults, couples and young people;  providing short-term and long-term therapy.

I studied Robin Shohet and Peter Hawkins and qualified in Clinical Supervision in 2010.  This supervision model compliments my way of working in terms of  nurturing the professional development of the supervisee through support and encouragement, whilst providing a space to debrief and reflect on the client work. 

Practice description

As a qualified Clinical Supervisor for 10 years and a Counsellor with 20 years of experience;  I regard my supervision role as one of guiding, supporting and encouraging the professional development  of both my trainees and qualified counsellors and to bring into clear focus the needs of the client.

Over the years my own supervision has been inspirational and provided additional insights - ethically and creatively,  in order to to help me promote a safe and positive outcome for my clients and supervisees.  

Good supervison is invaluable and essential in enabling us to be the best we an be, and on occasions excellent in our client work.

However, one size does not fit all in any discipline...so as with choosing a counsellor; the working relationship between supervisor and supervisee has to be compatible and trusting.

Therefore my way of working is to promote an open and honest dialogue as we explore the therapeutic work and the needs of our clients,  and ensure we are working ethically within the scope of our experience.

My first session

You are welcome to contact me in order to arrange a time to discuss your supervision requirements, and establish whether they are compatible with my model and approach.

This initial contact is free of charge.
