My first experience of counselling was as a client in 2002. The process of being heard and identifying unhelpful behaviour / thought patterns was both challenging and enlightening. Through reflecting on and validating my own life experiences, I moved from a self critical mindset to a compassionate one. This journey was difficult, at times, but it was a catalyst for change. A therapeutic relationship which fosters trust, respect and curiosity, is essential to facilitate changes within ourselves and with our relationships with others.

I am now fully qualified as an accredited BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) counsellor. I consider myself to be a supportive, empathetic and experienced therapist, who provides a safe, non judgmental and confidential environment for clients to explore their difficulties. I believe that the experience of sharing difficult feelings; of being ‘heard’ and not judged can be liberating and empowering. I have over 15 years experience as a counsellor and I work with individuals and couples. When appropriate we can include techniques from mindfulness and meditation in the therapy sessions.

I also have had 18 years experience teaching English and maths to second language speakers, many of whom are refugees/asylum seekers.

I live in Gatley with my husband, one dog and two cats. I have 2 adult children, who I enjoy spending time with.

I abide by the BACP code of ethics/conduct and I comply with GDPR (Global Data Processing Regulation) requirements regarding the storage of client data. I hold an up to date DBS check and I receive regular supervision.
