I am a fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Hypnotherapist, and registered with the National Counselling Society and the National Hypnotherapy Society. I work in strict compliance with their ethical standards and hold full professional insurance for my practice.
I trained to become a psychotherapeutic counsellor because I wanted to help my clients overcome their difficulties in life. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing happy and contented clients. Whatever I have done in my life, my attitude to people has always been one of compassion. So, my choice to become a therapist seemed not only natural but organic. I am fully committed to being open, supportive and honest with my clients, learning and growing with each and everyone of them as I go along. It is quite simply a blessing and an honour to be able to assist people in difficult situations.
My most recent qualifications include the Professional Diploma in Psychotheraputic Counselling, the Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills, the Diploma in Life Coaching.
The learning journey never stops… In addition to my qualifications, I am currently studying for the Diploma in Couples Relationship Counselling with Marriage Care, and will be able to start seeing couples from September 2021.
I live in the Thames Valley near Reading with my family and two very lazy cats. I love anything outdoors – pottering around in my garden or going on long country walks. These interests made me think of combining the two things I love most: my therapy work and my favourite hobby. See my walking therapy page for the benefits of combining the therapy sessions with a walk in natural surroundings.
LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU! I do not know what may be troubling you… Do you want to understand yourself better? Or maybe you are looking for some resolution and peace of mind? You may be too anxious about the pandemic and the way our lives have changed so dramatically lately. Things not too great at work? Feeling trapped in a relationship? Or perhaps you have developed some unhelpful habits and need some motivation to get rid of them? The list goes on… Although I don’t know your specific issue, I do know that together we can talk. And when we talk, the burden should not feel as heavy. Together we can achieve a lot. So why not give therapy a go?
