I have been counselling for the past 12 years. I worked in voluntary agencies here in Reading and also in Maidenhead for several years before starting in private practice. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including: –

Relationship difficulties
Childhood sexual abuse
… to name but a few.

As well as working in private practice I also provide both individual and group supervision to counsellors working in voluntary organisations and private practice. Prior to qualifying as a counsellor I worked in the corporate world for many years in Marketing Services.

What do I offer?

Counselling and psychotherapy, both short term and long term, with adults and couples.

Supervision to trainees and experienced practitioners. Support through the process of accreditation.

Approach and orientation

I am a person-centred counsellor and that means that I truly believe that we are all experts in our own lives. I am here to work through your issues with you by listening, attentively and without judgement, to how things are for you.

I am committed to providing counselling in a holistic way, which means I work with you as a person and not as a series of issues or problems.

Philosophy on Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling provides you with a safe place to explore what is going on for you. Having the opportunity to talk freely, and know that you are being heard by someone who is not going to judge you or jump in with advice, can make a huge difference.

I am committed to understanding you, accepting you and helping you find your way.
