Nice to meet you… I have been a counsellor and supervisor for over 25 years, and am passionate about helping people to change their lives, and move forward in a more positive way…
I am a BACP accredited counsellor with an M.A in Psychotherapy and have over 25 years experience in counselling & supervising. I have worked as a counsellor in the Rutland and Leicestershire area for 20 years, and have written and published clinical treatment books both in the US and the UK. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults, and have experience with individual, couples, and group therapy.
As well as working as a counsellor and supervisor, I am also a practicing artist, painter and printmaker, and I bring this creativity to my work. I am an empathic, sensitive individual, and an excellent listener, and together we can explore your personal growth in a more holistic, mindful and integrated way.
I am an integrative counsellor, as I am trained and specialise in a number of different orientations such as cognitive, psychodynamic, person-centred and self psychology. Sessions can be tailored to your individual needs and are confidential. Over the past 25 years I have specialised in treating the following issues:
- low self-esteem or self-worth
- anxiety & stress
- eating issues and disorders
- relationship issues
- difficult life transitions
- chronic illness
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
- abuse and trauma
Sessions last for 60 minutes for adults and 45 minutes for adolescents, and take place in my cosy and relaxing country cottage in Braunston, Rutland from Monday - Friday. Sessions cost £45 an hour for individuals, and £60 for couples. Supervision for other counsellors also costs £45 an hour.
I also offer phone counselling sessions, and am happy to work with you in whatever way suits you best and fits your lifestyle.
Please feel free to contact me for more information, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
