About Me – Training and Experience


I have an Advanced Diploma in Counselling, having trained with the Dartmoor Centre in Newton Abbot.

I previously worked for over 10 years as a Social Worker with children and their families. This has given me experience of working with difficult and complex relationships, within the family and in the wider community. I have worked with people from a variety of backgrounds and respect and value our differences. My own life has been challenging at times and I have personally experienced the way counselling can transform our lives.

I have a B Sc (med sci) from St Andrew’s University. I have also worked as a carpenter, and more recently, as a self-employed gardener. I  see  links between the way I tend and take care of plants to help them grow, and the care and commitment I bring to my counselling practice.
