About

I’m a qualified, professional therapist with more than five years experience supporting people explore and understand their feelings better.

My training gave me a thorough grounding in the Person-Centred Approach and I offer the skilful use of empathic listening, I trust in your search for health and wellness and I bring compassion and a non-judgmental attitude to our relationship.

As well as my independent practice I work as an online counsellor for Sue Ryder hospice with people coping with bereavement. The experience of bereavement is often overwhelming and painful but can lead us towards a deeper connection with ourselves.

I also work in a focusing-orientated way, inviting the body to be a guide in the healing process, and I have many years training and experience in shamanism and tai chi.

Sessions take place in the Acorn Practice Space in my garden, or in my house or sometimes outdoors.

Developing self-awareness and sharing the pain, disappointments, wonder and joy of life with others is a constant source of enrichment for me. I believe the healing we do for ourselves also benefits those around us and the whole eco-system we are a part of.
