A little more about me



I am a wife and mother and have worked over the last 25 years in a number of different areas – in law, education, construction and the NHS. I have gained a huge amount of life experience during this time, both within my personal life and through my time in different job roles.  It was through personal experiences and working in fairly diverse areas that I began to understand how, as humans, we all experience pain – perhaps through mental health issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety or depression, relational issues with family, friends or partners, or situational difficulties, such as poverty, job loss or illness to name just a few.   I decided to train as an integrative counsellor to gain an understanding of various theories which may be applied to my work; however, it has been found that the single most important aspect which enables change and deeper understanding is a trusting and supportive relationship which is always my priority.  In addition to my private practice, I work as a volunteer counsellor for the NHS working with people affected by cancer I have also volunteered for MTCIC, which seeks to help people with a broad range of concerns.
