About me

Welcome to my profile! I am a private practitioner providing both counselling and psychotherapy.

I offer online sessions using a secure platform where we can meet. Additionally, I offer face to face, and outdoor Ecotherapy. Please feel very welcome to contact me.

I work from the Eden Valley; close to M6 J39, and in easy reach of Kendal, Appleby and Penrith.

I also work from Basingstoke in Hampshire.

What is counselling or therapy?
"Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things". (BACP- British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, 2012)

Specialist Experience
I have a number of specialist areas: cross cultural work, issues relating to third culture and re-entry into birth country, childhood sexual abuse, rape and trauma; in addition I have a great deal of experience working with depression, anxiety, stress, loss and relationship difficulties. My therapeutic work and client experience has involved extensive periods of living and working overseas as an expatriate, and within the humanitarian sector working with trauma. I am therefore familiar with these challenges.

How do I work?
I work with each person in a way that is meaningful to where they are in life at that point in time. This means that I will work with you to understand how you see the world, your values and what is important to you and together find a way forward towards a more fulfilling life.

My way of working is relational, using an integrated approach; I therefore utilise different theoretical models as they suit each person as a unique human being. It maybe that you have a diagnosis and together we would explore the root causes and the potential you have to make the changes you want.

I work with anyone over the age of 18 and I hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
I can provide both long term, and short term therapy and we would agree an initial number of sessions and review continually throughout our therapeutic relationship.

If you have any queries, or you would like to make an appointment please contact me either by email, or mobile.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.
