I provide a professional therapy service based near Basingstoke in Hampshire for adults and young people (aged 14 plus). I have experience supporting clients with a range of issues including; stress and anxiety; self esteem and self worth; communication and relationship issues. I also have additional specialist training and considerable experience working with the challenges of grief and loss. I am a professionally trained and qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I am also qualified in hypnotherapy which I can offer as an additional tool where it may be of benefit when working with particular issues.

In addition to my counselling practice I have trained as a teacher and have over 25 years’ experience working in the field of learning and personal development across the private, public and voluntary sectors. During my career I have also worked to address and influence the life chances of disadvantaged young people; health inequalities for children and families, as well as developing interpersonal skills to the benefit of organisations and their employees. I draw on this experience in my counselling practice to support and facilitate personal growth.
