I offer short and long term counselling. ​I am a member of the National Counselling Society and UKATA, abide by the UKATA code of ethics and am fully insured. ​*Boarding School Survivors: ​ For many ex-boarders the experience of being sent away to boarding school has a long lasting impact. Some of the ways you adapted as a child to the school environment may have become problematic in your adult life now. The privilege attached to private schools can make this difficult to acknowledge and talk about. ​State boarding schools present similar and different challenges. I have specialist training in working with ex-boarders and can help you address issues arising from your boarding experience. Inner change can happen at any point in our lives, when we are willing to take that first step. ​"Start close in, don’t take the second step or the third, start with the first thing close in, the step you don’t want to take." ​ ​(David Whyte, River Flow: New and Selected Poems)
