Supporting you through life's ups and downs

Ebb & Flow Counselling, Mindfulness & Meditation

Areas of work

I have worked as a counsellor in a GP surgery and am currently working in a university and an NHS Trust.  I have a very wide and varied counselling experience and some of the concerns I work with are listed in the drop-down menus and below, however  they do not list all my experience.  If you do not find your concern listed on this website  just get in touch (without obligation) and it may be that I have experience in that area too.

My nursing background is tremendously helpful as I am aware of the health conditions, medications and diseases that individuals may have which may be impacting on their lives.  My knowing a bit about it means that the individual is not trying to explain themselves, and we can get on with the counselling work.

My nursing background of working in pain management, and my personal experience of chronic pain, means that I am ideally placed to offer support and advice with individuals in chronic pain or with long-term health conditions.  As such we can devise your own personalized pain management program to improve physical functioning.

My knowledge and experience make me the unique counsellor that I am, ready to meet with you and your uniqueness.
