I am a qualified person centred counsellor accredited and registered (083879) with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
My specialisms are:
Additionally I am a practising astrologer. I trained as a counsellor and astrologer concurrently and from first-hand experience I value how the two disciplines complement each other. During difficult periods, I consult my own chart and this helps me get a sense of what’s going on.
I was drawn to Carl Rogers’ Person Centred theoretical approach to counselling. I find this to be a liberating approach which allowed me to discover who I really am. I am interested in spiritual development and my counselling has evolved to support clients experiencing a ‘spiritual awakening / emergency’ – work pioneered by Stanislav Grof, Czech psychiatrist.
Before becoming a counsellor, I worked in the Defence and Aerospace industry for 15 years, including a period of commissioned service with the Royal Air Force. I understand the pressures of working in fast paced, demanding environments, whilst striving to maintain a work-life balance.
I am based in Halesworth, Suffolk, East Anglia offering short or longer term counselling, face to face and online. Please contact me here contact form .
