I am a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and incorporate the following approaches into my work

  • Person-Centred
  • Gestalt
  • Transactional Analysis
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Creative Arts Therapy

I tailor the way that I work to suit the particular needs of the individual client. I have my own private practice at home and dedicated therapy room for counselling clients.

In addition to my private Counselling Practice, I have over eight years experience working in various Voluntary Organisations. I have three-and-a-half years experience as a Volunteer Counsellor at the Portsmouth Abuse and Rape Counselling Service (PARCS), offering counselling and support to men and women who have experienced sexual violation in the past, or more recently. I also have five years experience of working for Off-The-Record (OTR) in Havant - firstly, as a Support Worker for two years, and then as a Volunteer Counsellor for three years, counselling young people from 11 to 25 years. Additionally, I have over a year's experience of working for The Carers Support Service in Chichester, counselling adults who need support in their role as carer to a spouse, partner, child, parent or relative. The three organisations have given me valuable knowledge and experience of working with a diverse range of people.
