About Me

My life experience has been wide and varied and along with my formal training, provides me with a solid foundation to practice as an integrated counsellor. I was brought up in Rhodesia and came to the UK in 1988 where I continued with my nursing studies and undertook my training as a counsellor at the University of Derby.

I work voluntarily for Cruse Bereavement Care helping grieving clients come to terms with their loss, as well as offering supervision to other Cruse volunteers. I have also worked in a private rehabilitation clinic for addicts and alcoholics. I have worked in the National Health Service for over 24 years, mostly in primary care, and have a wide range of both professional and personal experience. I continue to work as a senior nurse practitioner.

I can offer you a caring and confidential service where you can explore positive solutions that are right for you and your situation. I come from a nursing background and can offer integrative therapy specifically tailored to your needs, enabling you to explore and make sense of the many aspects of your life, emotions and experience.
