After a long pharmacy career in the NHS and private sectors, ill health resulted in the need for me to change directions. Over the years, I had become increasingly aware of the affect mental health has on our physical wellbeing and the urgent need for readily available support, to address a wide range of debilitating issues. I therefore decided to train in the fields of counselling and psychotherapy and qualified in 2014, after studying with the Open University and Oxford College. On leaving NHS employment in 2017, I set up Holistic Counselling Services and am now privileged to support and guide clients, on a one-to-one basis or with couples, as a Counsellor, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Integrative Psychotherapist. Due Covid-19 and its continuing unpredictability, I now prefer to see clients via Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp, but where appropriate and safe, I am able to see local clients in-person. I believe it is advantageous for prospective clients to have a brief ‘phone chat with me, prior to making a consultation appointment, in order to gauge whether they feel comfortable when talking about their concerns, so I always offer this option.
Dealing with anxiety, stress, anger, bereavement, chronic pain, relationship issues, body image and eating disorders, alcohol dependency and addiction can all be a struggle and I am passionate about supporting and guiding my clients towards a balanced, positive future.
