I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and have been in counselling practice since 2003.

I offer counselling to adults at my Private Practice in Rimpton, Somerset.


I take counselling referrals for The Headache Clinic in Yeovil, working as a part of the multi-disciplinary management team of Chiropractors, Orthodontist and Psychotherapist.   

I am well located to offer counselling to Service personnel at RNAS Yeovilton with insight and awareness of the particular problems experienced by this unique way of life.

Dove Retreat is where we have two traditional styled shepherd's huts for long weekends of rest, relaxation and feeling revived. 

I provide Nurture in Nature sessions at our rural retreat, set in a peaceful corner of the countryside. These are delivered as one-to-one sessions and bespoke small group workshops www.doveretreat.co.uk
