I’m a Registered BACP Accredited Counsellor, working with Individuals and Couples, EAPs and Organisations. People that I work with often have difficulties in Relationships, Low Self-esteem, Depression, Abuse, Bereavement and Losses, particularly issues arising from childhood.

I offer a compassionate and confidential therapeutic relationship to help you overcome a wide range of problems.

I see people in pleasant, relaxing surroundings in both Cricklade and Swindon, where you can feel safe and secure in discussing your worries and concerns.

Individuals come for counselling because they want to overcome barriers to moving forward in their lives.

Couples come for counselling when they want to improve their understanding of their relationship; how they can transform how they are both with themselves and with their partner and how together they can form a more satisfying relationship.

My aim is to help you gain (or regain) ways and means to be happy and fulfilled as you go forward in life, managing your current and any future worries and problems that may occur.

Please contact me if you think I can help.

I have a practise at:
 Cheviot House, 41 Bath Road, SWINDON, Wiltshire SN1 4AS, and also at
 Cricklade Osteopathic Health Practice, 12 High Street,
   CRICKLADE, Wiltshire SN6 6AP
