ABOUT ME

Counsellor

Hi - thank you for looking at my website.   

 I am a qualified counsellor and hold a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC).  I am a member of BACP, and an accredited member of UKCP.  I am also a member of BCPC and the Oxford Therapy Centre (OTS). 

I am an experienced therapist and psychotherapeutic counsellor and have worked with clients from different backgrounds and with a wide range of issues: depression, anxiety, low mood, relationship issues, bereavement (including suicide and drug related deaths), low self-esteem, abuse (sexual and domestic violence), work difficulties, illness and issues around caring.

My counselling background encompasses training and working as a counsellor in a variety of settings.  I have experience as a volunteer counsellor in the charity sector - Cruse and Victim Support - and also a family centre (Butterflies) in Swindon.  I am currently employed as a counsellor at a family counselling service in Newbury. 


In addition to this, I also work in private practice, and work from therapy centres in Wantage, Witney and Oxford.   I also hold a Level 5 certificate in counselling children and young people, and

see young people aged 16 and older.

I work in person and  also offer online counselling (zoom, skype, whatsapp) .  

I lived on the Isle of Man for close on six years and welcome clients from the island and am able to offer confidential online counselling.
