About Me

I began working for a national charity in 2004 working with clients face to face and counselling over the telephone on its national helpline. The reason I chose to work for such a charity was because of my passion for the issues with which it worked, which are as follows:

  • infertility
  • miscarriage
  • stillbirth
  • abortion 
  • ectopic pregnancy 
  • neonatal death
  • loss of a young child
  • antenatal/postnatal depression

I feel that the pain of all of the above is so complicated, not least because of it's invisibility and the isolation it can encourage.

In addition to counselling, I have produced and deliver a training programme for counsellors and counselling students who work with clients suffering from any of the issues mentioned, focussing specifically on pregnancy loss and the complicated grief of abortion..

My approach is very person centred although I may use Creative Therapies, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and some Psycho Dynamic theory to enhance the process. I do believe that nobody knows us more than we know ourselves and therefore respect each individual and their uniqueness above all. 

 I continue to develop my skills by attending regular workshops and seminars. 

I have monthly supervision with a qualified supervisor. I hold a current enhanced D.B.S certificate.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists; therefore I abide by its code of ethics.
