“I am now offering counselling services in Nether Stowey after many years experience in a variety of settings. Please contact me for more information.”





Before starting my counselling career, I experienced separation and divorce, when I felt confused and lost. I also experienced close family illness and bereavement, and suffered Post Natal Depression after becoming a new mum.  


During these difficult periods counselling allowed me time and space to express my feelings and thoughts; to discover who I was and where I wished to take my life. When I had counselling, I felt accepted, not judged, respected and truly listened to.


This positive therapy inspired me to start my training to be able to provide the same for others.

  • Level 3 Certificate in Counselling

I now have a number of years experience working across a variety of organisations and dealing with a number of specialities.
