I am a Registered Accredited Member of BACP with 20 years experience working as a Counsellor in private practice, NHS, multi disciplinary counselling services, Employee Assistance Providers (EAP) and insurance companies. Additionally, I provide Performance Coaching and Stress Management and run workshops on a range of subjects including stress management and for adults estranged from familiy members.

I work with individual adult clients both short-term (from 6-12 sessions), to long-term, open-ended contracts. I work with clients from all walks of life and am experienced in working with trainee counsellors and healthcare professionals.
