I am a counsellor, coach and mindfulness mediation instructor. With over 20 years of experience working one-to-one with people, I am passionate about helping people – whether helping people with change or in dealing with a difficult life issue.

Life is not easy. We don’t have to have suffered a traumatic experience in order to need a helping hand and a supportive ear. Life at today’s frenetic pace can be terribly isolating, so it can be helpful to have someone to talk to; someone who is trained to listen, wholeheartedly and non-judgementally; someone with whom you can explore how you feel and put words on those feelings.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, having qualified from the University of Brighton with a Post- Graduate diploma in Humanistic Therapeutic Counselling. Coming from a background in physiology, my counselling work has been greatly influenced by the more bodily aware approaches of Gestalt and Focusing. As a meditator, I am also very interested in Buddhist psychology and how Eastern and Western sciences of the mind can integrate. My own path has highlighted their combined power for emotional well-being.

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client can be incredibly healing. In our work together we will build a safe and trusted space in which we can explore whatever is troubling you. You will find me genuine and really present for you – and this will help you find the courage to be open and honest.
