Hi - thank you for looking at my website.
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and hold a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). I am an accredited member of UKCP and am also a member of BCPC and the Oxford Therapy and Self-Development Network (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 and Witney. I also hold a Level 5 certificate in counselling children and young people, and
see young people aged 14 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.
Prior to counselling I worked in both the arts and education sector.
I continue to teach; offering private music lessons.
