Before training to become a counsellor I worked for over twenty years as a palliative care nurse, offering nursing and psychological care to patients and relatives in a hospice. Through nursing I learnt the importance of kindness and openness and willingness to be alongside people suffering great distress. Being close to patients and families during a time of crisis and loss has given me a growing appreciation of the human spirit. It was a desire to develop and deepen my skills that drew me towards training as a counsellor.

I trained as an Integrative-Relational counsellor at Kingston College and obtained a BA in counselling from Middlesex University. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My approach is Integrative and Relational, this means that in my work I draw on the insights and understanding from Psychodynamic and Humanistic theoretical backgrounds. I believe that each person given the right conditions can grow, overcome difficulties, and live more fully. The necessary conditions for this to happen I believe can be found within relationships with others committed to our wellbeing and growth.

I work in an open ended way, and would see you for a 50min session weekly, or for a fixed time (for example six or twelve weeks) if we agreed on this together. I abide by the BACP code of ethics and my work is supervised by a senior practitioner.

I may be able to help if:

  • You feel distressed, overwhelmed or unable to cope.
  • You are struggling with bereavement, an ending or loss.
  • You are experiencing relationship difficulties.
  • You are experiencing problems with self-esteem.
  • You are suffering with depression or anxiety.
  • You want to live a fulfilled life but do not know what that would look like for you.
  • You feel stuck, repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
  • You are seeking to heal past hurts and unmet needs.
  • You are in a time of transition, uncertain of the way ahead.
  • You want to change a behaviour that is limiting your life in some way.
