Counselling and stress management in Southampton

Creative CPD for therapists


Some background

My interest in the human condition led to a psychology degree, training and working as a careers adviser, learning energy psychology methods including Touch for Health and EFT and eventually qualifying as a holistic and creative Gestalt counsellor. Since 2011, I've worked as a counsellor and trainer at the Olive Branch, established my private practice and at the University of Winchester have counselled students and helped to set up on-site staff counselling.

I offer counselling, stress management support, strengths coaching and careers guidance. Having run creative counselling and coaching workshops since 2017, I'm offering a Diploma in Creative Application of the Five Elements from March 2025.

I've learned some important lessons from life that, combined with supervision and ongoing CPD, all help to ground and guide my counselling practice and professional training offer.

Why Goodwill Guidance

I call my practice this to recognise the moments of healing goodwill, of compassionate here and now awareness celebrated by many wisdom traditions, that may bring emotional freedom and guide us to make more of our time on this planet. The first healing reflection is an homage to this wonderful quality.
