I am an experienced counsellor working in private practice. Over the last decade I have also worked for NHS-referred clients in Ludlow, for young adults with the CLD Trust, and was the counsellor at The Breast Cancer Haven in Hereford. I have also lectured in counselling at Herefordshire and Ludlow College on the Foundation Degree in Counselling (University of Worcester) and the BTEC Diploma in Counselling.

I am based on the Welsh border between Herefordshire, Shropshire and Powys. I work currently online.

I am an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP

And spirituality, if this is an aspect of your life you are particularly interested in exploring more deeply.

I work in the person-centred tradition of counselling, and with a ‘Focusing’ orientation: this is a fantastic way of helping clients be more able to be in touch with and understand better their thoughts, feelings and experience. Many clients find this extremely helpful.

I respect every single person as a unique individual, and this is fundamental to my work: your own way of being is at the heart of our work together.  I may therefore introduce you to aspects of other counselling models and approaches, where I think it might be beneficial to you. These could include aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA), psychodynamic theory, or mindfulness, for example. The key concept is that I follow you and as our work together progresses, I hopefully get a good feel of what helps you most.

I love my work of counselling, as I see again and again how this process can transform people’s lives, changing the way we see and interact with ourselves and others.

You may find counselling creates a space away from your usual world of work, relationships and difficulties where you can have time and safety in which to share burdens, pain, troubles – or joys – that you may have been carrying alone for a long time.
