About Me

Having experienced the transformative experience of being listened to following a time of stress and depression, I decided to train as a Counsellor.

Prior to that I worked for 20+ years in the charity sector doing HR.

I have spent the last four years working as a counsellor.  I began my career at Harley Street, London working mainly with clients in the arts.  Two years ago I moved to the South West. Through the pandemic I worked on line. I continue to offer this service, but also do face to face counselling with an agency in Yeovil and at my own practice in Shaftesbury.

I am an individual member of the BACP and ACC the professional bodies who accredit counsellors.

I have regular supervision as part of my practice and am bound by the ethical code of practice of my professional bodies.

I enjoy research and learning as part of my continuous professional development.  I have recently completed training in attachment behaviour and working with eating disorders.

My Approach

I'm an integrative Counsellor which means I draw on different modalities depending on the needs of my client.  This makes for a unique experience for each person I work with.

I am person centred and place a great deal of focus on being genuine, accepting and empathic as I believe these are key components to helping clients unburden their concerns, discover who they are at heart and be able to affect change for themselves.

I can use creative ways of working if that is something you would enjoy.

I often bring Gestalt, Mindfulness, Compassion Focussed Therapy and Inner Child work into the counselling room which I feel sit well alongside the often more rational focussed work of CBT.

I am a Christian and am happy to work with spirituality in the counselling room if this is helpful to my clients.
