I am a registered integrative, humanistic counsellor with particular emphasis on transpersonal and person centred theory.
 
I have 20 years’ experience of working with children and families in various settings and have a passion for working with people.
    
In 2010 I was moved to train as a counsellor and embarked on a 4 year journey at Sweet Track in Glastonbury. I was surprised at the depth of the journey I went on during my training and how transformative and creative counselling can be.

To be truly heard and held during challenging times was a profound experience for me and it has lead me to focus on developing my counselling practice.

My background is in family support but I also have experience of performing arts and music. Creativity can be very useful in the counselling space as it can uncover aspects of ourselves, thoughts and emotions that are tricky to verbalise with words. Dare I say it, the counselling space can be fun and enlightening as well as cathartic.

I have volunteered as a bereavement counsellor at St Margarets Hospice in Yeovil and at the Dorset Rape crisis centre.

As well as seeing private clients, I am currenlty working as a counsellor at Mosaic, Dorset's child bereavement service.
