About me

Having worked as a manager in business for many years, I

decided to retrain as a counsellor, as I enjoyed working with

people and mentoring and developing them through their

career. I found that short term counselling after a family

bereavement was incredibly beneficial to me, and it sparked

an interest in the work. I had been told by friends and colleagues that I was approachable, easy to talk to and felt that they could trust me. Following a discussion with a friend who was a counsellor, and after much reflection and investigation, I decided  this was a the time for me to retrain in this rewarding and  profession.​

I had my own counselling/therapy as part of my training, so know how it feels to sit as a client. I learned much about myself, my emotions and relationships, and how my own past had impacted on the person I am today. 

 

I spent several years working with and as a trustee for a local counselling charity as well as running my independent practice. I am  happiest when out in nature, walking or spending time in my garden growing flowers  and vegetables. I practice yoga and meditation, and appreciate the benefits both to myself and my clients. ​I feel privileged in my counselling role to support the curious and brave people who choose to work with me.
