Welcome to my website.
I have been counselling since 2000, and I am a Registered and Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), with a special interest in relationships of all kinds.
I offer face to face or telephone counselling for couples and individuals, including children and young people.
I work in my log cabin in our garden. This makes for a quiet, peaceful atmosphere, where you can explore whatever is on your mind, in confidence.
I aim to listen to your concerns without judging you in any way, to understand you from your own point of view, and to help you make sense of whatever may be troubling you.
Sessions usually last 60 minutes, but we may agree shorter or longer sessions, depending on your needs and preferences.
As I work independently, I can be flexible and taylor the way we work together to suit you.
I grew up in Germany and came to live in England when I was 18. I was a nurse and a midwife, and now work as a counsellor only. I worked in the NHS for 30 years, and also for the University of Southampton, Leicester University, Totton College, Hampshire County Council’s School Counselling Service, Solent Mind, and Relate.
I believe strongly in equal opportunities for all and enjoy meeting people of all ages with different ways of life, interests, talents, and abilities.
