About Me

People from all walks of life come for counselling, and I hope the following information helps you decide whether to make contact with me.

I'm a specialist bereavement counsellor for adults of all ages, including families and couples. I can also help you work through depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, relationship or parenting difficulties.

I offer a person-centred approach to counselling, and I will work to ensure I am someone you feel safe with and can wholeheartedly trust. I believe in valuing people just as they are, so I will not judge or criticise you, nor define you by any diagnosis you may have.

I will listen attentively to how things are for you - what you're feeling and experiencing, and we will work at your pace. I won't provide solutions or advice because I trust you're the only person that can know what is best for you.

I can work creatively using art - I have received training in art therapy skills and expressive arts therapy, and a creative approach may benefit you if you find it difficult to put feelings into words or would prefer to express yourself through art.

I will journey with you, and my role is to help you make sense of your difficulties, find a way through them, and continue to be the best you can be.

I work online through Skype, and at my practice based in the heart of Eastleigh, and I can see you for as long as you need. The first appointment offers an opportunity to establish if we could work well together.

If you would like to book an introductory appointment or ask questions before taking that step, please call 07729 193629 or email me through this profile or my website.

I am a former trained volunteer for Cruse Bereavement Care and bereavement services officer within Local Authority. I have supported bereaved and grieving adults for over a decade.

As a specialist bereavement counsellor, I can help you work through a loved one's serious illness, and sudden and unexpected bereavement.

You can also reach out to me if you're struggling with multiple bereavements or a bereavement you experienced many years ago, which is impacting upon your life today.

Children and young people learn to grieve from the adults around them, and I can help you support children and teenagers through grief, including the death of a parent, sibling, grandparent, friend or peer.

I have received specialist training in miscarriage and baby loss - stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death, yet I can help if you've suffered the loss of a child or grandchild of any age and by any circumstance.

With a background in adult mental health (public and voluntary sector), I am here for you if you're struggling with or affected by enduring mental health issues, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or borderline personality disorder.

I am a former volunteer for a county-wide chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME) charity, providing support to people with all forms of the condition. I am also a former helpline volunteer, providing confidential support and information to women experiencing domestic abuse.
