About me

I moved to Cyprus in 2012 and love living on this sunny, friendly island.  You might have already met me, if we share one of my several hobbies.  However, you may not have previously known about my work as a counsellor, and that's because I keep that work completely separate from my social life.

Whatever problems or situation you bring to counselling, I will not judge you and will listen with compassion, warmth and kindness. Counselling with me is completely confidential and you can be absolutely certain that anything you talk about will go no further – particularly important in a small community like Paphos. Our counselling work together will be a safe, understanding and honest relationship where you can explore issues or problems and find positive and helpful ways to go forward.

I've been a counsellor since 2007, having trained for four years in psychodynamic counselling with a BACP accredited provider in the UK and then spent some years working as a counsellor for a mental health charity.   I have further qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy and completed a course in bereavement and end-of-life counselling with PASYKAF since moving to Cyprus.

I'm an accredited Member of the Complementary Medical Association, an overseas Member of the UK Hypnotherapy Council and a Registered Member of the National UK Therapists Register.  I work at all times within the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  This is your assurance that I am trained, ethical and respectful of you and the confidence you place in me.

I undertake regular CPD to keep up to date with developments in my areas of interest, and continue to study other models of counselling.  This enables me to incorporate useful aspects of different methods when planning individual treatments.

I've had a long and varied life, seen most things and even done some of them myself. I'm open-minded, pretty much unshockable, and certainly understand how good people can find themselves in difficult places.
