I qualified as a counsellor in 1995 with a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Birmingham University. I have a Certificate in Therapeutic Play with PTUK, and more recently trained in Compassionate Focused Therapy with Professor Paul Gilbert and the Compassionate Mind Foundation. As a long-standing practitioner of mindfulness, I often integrate mindfulness-based approaches into my work. I seek to offer a reflective, compassionate space for enquiry and exploration of whatever matters most to you..
I have worked with children, young people and adults in a variety of settings and with a wide range of issues - including anxiety, depression, abuse, bereavement and loss, relationship issues, bullying, low self-esteem, identity issues, chronic or terminal illness, and spirituality.
I am an Accredited Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work according to their ethical guidelines.
