I worked for the Portsmouth Counselling Service in Fratton for 5 years and this was my original placement, where I first started to see adult clients, some of whom were referred by their doctor.
I have also worked voluntarily for the University College of Creative Arts in Farnham as a student counsellor. I was there for a year and a half, seeing students from aged 18yrs upwards.
I worked voluntarily for (S.A.D.A.S.) in Guildford and I was there for 2 years.
Currently I practice from my home and have seen clients privately for 10 years. I have a small room that is private from the rest of the house, so confidentiality is assured.

•Bereavement and loss.
•Low self Esteem.
•Adult childhood issues.
•Abuse/Emotional/physical/childhood and adult abuse.
•Spiritual Growth (not based on religion)
•Young adult issues.
and much more............Whatever the problem, I am here to support you.
•I am here to help you explore, by asking certain questions and sometimes showing a different perspective, also at times by making connections between past and present beliefs. I sometimes use drawing and imagery to help the process. At all times I believe in your ability to see your own worth and potential. I do not wave a magic wand over you, but enable you to try and help yourself. I am not here to give advice. Advice is something that can be conditional. I am here to accept you unconditionally and non-judgmentally.
