Since qualifying as a counsellor in 1997 I have worked in a range of settings both paid and voluntary. Most of my experience has been with clients in drug and alcohol agencies. I have also worked as a GP practice counsellor and in private practice. I have worked in online counselling since training in 2015.

I offer online counselling via instant messaging, email exchange and video – and work according to the needs and goals of my clients. My core counselling approach is person centred. I will provide an online experience of empathy acceptance, warmth and genuineness – to enable you to take the steps that are right for you in your counselling journey with me.
I also draw upon other therapeutic approaches, particularly cognitive-behavioural therapy, when appropriate.
I worked for many years as an addictions counsellor at different agencies. Before training as a counsellor I worked as a teacher and also as a historian.
