I offer gentle therapeutic massage that is beneficial for many health problems or if you just want to relax and de-stress. Using healing oils the quality of touch is gentle, reassuring and soothing and supports your body to rebalance and restore itself. Rhythm is a language that the body understands – our bodily processes, heart and lungs, sleeping and waking are all based on rhythm; but when we are unwell, anxious, overtired or otherwise challenged in life, these processes can become unbalanced. Bringing rhythm to the body through gentle touch helps to restore harmony.
I offer integrative Counselling from a Person Centered base using elements of Gestalt and Transactional Analysis as well. I like to work creatively when it’s appropriate to do so, to aid in expressing emotions, feelings and thoughts.
I have three core values when it comes to my counselling practice: keeping it simple, working in creative ways and being professional. I’ll not use any scary or potentially off putting therapy words, instead I’ll offer you a completely none judgemental, empathetic, client central approach to whatever it might be you have going on in your life.
Your thoughts, feelings and emotions are safe with me. I can work with whatever it might be that is going on for you right now.

I am passionate about care of the skin and my knowledge is based on the principle that the skin protects as well as reveals the inner soul-life as it mediates between individual, people and environment.

During lockdown restrictions I have been able to offer counselling via phone or Zoom video calls as well as face to face at the Elysia Therapeutic Centre. I am continuing to offer these possibilities according to whichever option suits you.
My work with you is based very much on your needs and takes in the bigger picture of the human being and your biography, helping you to find some meaning in the challenges that you meet. These challenges can provide us with an opportunity to develop and grow new capacities within ourselves that can lead to finding a more fulfilling way forward in life. I integrate various modalities into my practice, particularly biographical counselling, the person-centred approach, solution-focussed work, cognitive behavioural therapy, systemic practice and the use of creative methods.
I have been counselling since 1994, working mainly in private practice, school settings, general practices and within the voluntary sector. My work involves counselling individuals, children, young people and couples who may be struggling with issues such as relationship difficulties, life crises, bereavement, anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, trauma, anger and loss. This can be on a short or longer-term basis.
I am a qualified counselling supervisor working with experienced and trainee counsellors.

Liminal Space Counselling – the helping conversation
‘Liminal space is an in-between space. It is the space when you are ‘on the verge’ of something new: you are between ‘what was’ and ‘what will be’. You are waiting and ‘not knowing’ about what will come.’
When something in your life isn’t working, when everything that usually keeps you going isn’t enough, a helping conversation can provide new resources. I seek to build a compassionate, confidential, therapeutic space with you, so that we can work together to explore what’s happening in your life, discover meaning in the struggle, and find what you need to grow.
As a third age counsellor with a broad range of life experience, I understand how hard it can be to seek the support you need when you do not feel understood by others. I bring personal resource and counselling skills to support you on your journey during times of not knowing, transition or change.
