I have been in counselling practice since 2003. I offer counselling to adults and young people at my Private Practice in Rimpton, Somerset.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. I offer face-to-face and telephone sessions at my Studio in Rimpton.

I also work as a school counsellor, currently working at an Independent boarding school in Dorset, supporting students and staff as a Trauma Informed practitioner.

I spent 3 years working as a Parent & Family Support Advisor for Somerset County Council, whilst employed as a school counsellor at a Comprehensive school for 14 years.

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 and their family members, with insight and awareness of the particular problems experienced by this unique way of life.

I visit your workplace to provide Mindfulness sessions - 'Unwind at Work', for small groups of up to 4 people.
