About Me

I am a relational centred counsellor. I specialise in bereavement and loss, spiritual issues and bodywork. I am also experienced in working with a range of other concerns. I am interested in the way our bodies respond to our emotions and the pain and limitation that this can cause. We can work together to explore your experience and make the changes you choose.

I have worked in private practice for 10 years and was also an occupational therapist in the NHS for 30 years.

My Vision - A Garden of Discovery

I see your life as a garden where you nurture your hopes and dreams. BUT sometimes growth can be restricted by the weeds of anxiety and fear. The nutrients can be leached from the soil by depression. Bereavement and loss can leave a gaping hole.
In our counselling sessions, we will explore the issues which are concerning you and causing difficulties in your life. 
Gardening can be hard work, involving digging, pulling weeds and dealing with pests. The pests may be unknown to you or those you have been trying to ignore.
Together, we can discover the best way to nurture your garden and allow it to flourish. Along the way there is a strong possibility that we may find new plants and seedlings of treasured plants you thought you had lost. We may also discover that boundary walls crumble to reveal further areas of fertile land.
