Location: Chinnor

I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist and an accredited registrant of the National Counselling Society. I have an advanced diploma in psychotherapeutic counselling. I volunteer at a charitable agency as a Counsellor and work in private practice, supporting individuals from 18 years old onwards. I work from a therapy room in my home in Henton nr Chinnor. I am fully insured and DBS checked.

I offer a range of counselling and psychotherapy techniques, an integrated approach to best suit a client's requirements. My specialism is bereavement and loss although I also see clients with a variety of issues such as; stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low confidence and self esteem, phobias, bullying, anger management, trauma.

Whatever your reasons for requiring therapy, through my personal experience and professional skills we can explore your issues and work through them together. Prior to being a Counsellor I worked for over 20 years in both the Public and Private sectors in the finance industry, therefore I can have an appreciation of the demands, stresses and pressure that work can have on life. I am passionate about helping people improve their emotional wellbeing and mental health so they can move forward with their lives.

Please feel free to contact me for a no obligation free initial telephone consultation to see if therapy may be right for you.
