About me

About Me

I am a warm, friendly and compassionate person with a background of 25 years’ experience of teaching meditation and stress management, both privately and for the NHS.

After experiencing several painful losses myself, with the help of counselling I found myself feeling happy again for the first time in years. This is what I’d love to help you  discover too – even when it feels like your life has vanished.

I began training and working as a counsellor in 2006; I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am an accredited bereavement counsellor.

Although I specialise in loss and bereavement counselling, I have also worked with hundreds of people with a diverse range of difficulties, including relationship problems, anxiety, depression, anger management, low self esteem, and stress. You can read some testimonials from some of my clients to get an idea of how you could also benefit.

I am also a qualified supervisor of both trainee and qualified counsellors, with a BPS Approved Certificate in Clinical Supervision.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)  (certificate number 036212), and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice.

I am fully trained in the integrative approach, which means that I draw on a variety of counselling approaches, allowing me to adapt a unique therapy for each client and meet the particular needs of each individual.
