Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to look at my website which describes what I do as a counsellor, EMDR therapist and supervisor. 

There are many reasons why you may be considering therapy, including experiences of abuse, needing to make difficult decisions, coming to terms with change or the challenges of getting older.

Counselling can bring calm and understanding to replace the pain, anxiety and disturbance that you may be feeling. These distressing feelings come from wounds experienced within relationships like childhood neglect, or from traumas like an attack or a car accident. The work I do can bring peace to the past and be a foundation for a better future.

I offer supervision to both trainee and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists.

I’ve been seeing clients as a counsellor for over 20 years and offer a safe space, compassionate presence and knowledge that comes from wide experience.

Counselling and EMDR are non-invasive talking therapies for managing the challenges that life throws at us.  As an adjunct to EMDR I also use the Flash Technique, in which the most painful traumas can be processed without the need to dwell directly on them.

I see clients and supervisees face-to-face in Gloucester on Mondays and in Stroud on Thursdays and Fridays. I work online too, which I find can be equally as safe, effective and relational as meeting in person. 

As an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I am bound by the BACP’s Ethical Framework.

Contact me if you want to experience one of these therapies as a way of bringing your life back on track.
