I have over twenty years experience counselling individuals and couples. With an integrative and relational approach I work to build honest relationships with my clients.
My practice is in Stedham, a quiet village near Midhurst and not far from Petersfield and Haslemere. Here I offer a free introductory session to ensure that we feel comfortable working together.
In 1995 I completed a five year training at the psychotherapy training centre, Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) and was accredited by The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), who continue to regularly monitor and re-accredit me.
I'm a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), an EFT Advanced Practitioner (EFT-ADV), and have a Diploma in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).
If you have never had any form of counselling, the first steps in seeking assistance can feel very difficult, but take heart in knowing that like myself, most therapists have had that very same experience, going on to work in this field because of an ever-growing empathy for their fellow humans.
Reaching the point of seeking support can be pivotal in a person's life – it signifies recognition that we are not islands – that we need others – and sometimes that need is the reflective, non-judgmental quality of another in order to gain perspective on ourselves.
We are not people who are broken and need fixing, but are looking for a way to connect to our own inner resources – resources we may well be unaware of having.
