About me:

I have been a qualified counsellor since 1999. In the same year I set up, led and supervised a counselling service, Positive Action on Cancer, for people affected by cancer in Frome, Somerset. It is now called We Are Here.

I have a wealth of experience of counselling individuals and couples, and of supervising counsellors individually and within organisations, such as Positive Action on Cancer, Meningitis Research Foundation and Off The Record. I also have trained groups for RELATE, Macmillan Cancer Support and Wilshire Offending Team.

I offer counselling either Face to Face, on the telephone or via Skype and Facetime.

I currently work for a number of national organisations who provide counselling on the telephone and Skype for people working all over the world.

I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I abide by their code of ethics, (a copy of which can be made available to you upon request).
