About Me
My Approach

Approaches: Person-centred, Humanistic, Mindfulness, Somatic, and Polyvagal Informed.

My core approach to counselling is person-centred and client-directed and underpinned by facilitating an empathic, authentic, and healing environment. 

I also offer a more guided approach with psychoeducation, somatic experiencing, meditation, and breathwork for clients who may benefit from emotional regulation for anxiety, stress, academic anxiety, depression, trauma, and neurodiversity.

I work collaboratively with clients to move forward in a way that benefits them the most as an individual.


I provide a safe and non-judgemental space in which to explore any issues that may emerge in the process.

I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor and an Accredited Member of the BACP MBACP (Accred).

Polyvagal Theory also informs my work, along with breath work and somatic resourcing which can be helpful with dysregulation and trauma.


I worked for Wycombe Counselling Service/Bucks Mind for fourteen years. I also worked in the NHS as a nurse for over thirty years and have experience in providing counselling in an NHS setting.


I now have a private practice based in North Norfolk near Sheringham. I offer face-to-face counselling and also online counselling via zoom. 


Please email or message me for a free twenty-minute telephone or in-person consultation.


There is no disabled access but there is a bus service and parking.
