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 both UKCP and BACP, and also BCPC and the Oxford Therapy Centre (OTS). 

My counselling background encompasses training and working as a counsellor in a variety of settings.  I have worked as a bereavement volunteer with Cruse Oxford and also volunteered for Victim Support - supporting victims of crime.  I volunteered as a counsellor at a family centre in Swindon (Butterflies), and am now employed as a counsellor at a family counselling service in Newbury.  In addition I also work in private practice, and work from therapy centres in Wantage, Witney and Oxford.  

I have worked 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.  I also hold a Level 5 certificate in counselling children and young people, and see young people aged 13 and older.  


In addition to working face to face I also offer online counselling on either, zoom, whatsapp, skype or phone.  

I lived on the Isle of Man for close on six years and offer online counselling (via skype, zoom or phone) for those living on the island.  


Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked in the education sector as  a music teacher; teaching in schools and also teaching privately.
