I believe I can work with anyone who is stuck and wants to be unstuck.
If you're grieving and can't see past your loss
If you've been abused and feeling shame and pain
If you're feeling desperately sad and don't know how to shift the cloud
If you've been left traumatised after any event including birth trauma
If you're not sure why or what but you know you need help
If your problem isn't listed but you need someone to hear you
I can offer you a safe place with no judgement to BE HEARD
I don't have a set plan but work intuitively because you are unique. In the first session I may ask more questions than normal to assertain what you are wanting out of counselling. Then it's up to you how you spend the time and how many sessions you want.
I have many years of experience of working therapeutically with children and helping them through their bereavement. Through this work I have met with parents and discovered the advice and support I have given them has made a massive impact. So much so some children and young people have not needed therapeutic support. I am a true believer in modelling life skills to our children as they will follow in our footsteps.
However if you are stuck at a road block it’s hard to know how to move past, which could be why your child is also stuck.
I offer a service for parents who are struggling to deal with their child’s grief. If a child is grieving it is likely you the parent are also grieving and it can be really hard to see a way through everyone’s grief. I can offer you advice and insight that might help you take your family through the road block.

Outdoor Therapy: Walking & Being
Instead of sitting in The Caravan Clinic or meeting online we get outside and we talk AND we walk or you might simply just want to BE. You get the benefits of working with a qualified Counsellor and all the added benefits of being outside and breathing in fresh air.
Benefits of Outdoor Therapy
Being on the move encourages fluidity of thought and speech enabling you to think more creatively and freely.
You get the bonus happy hormones when you are walking
Breathing in fresh air gives your body more oxygen and that has huge health benefits (boosts circulation, reduces heart attacks and blood pressure, lowers heart rate, and decreases stress, raises self-esteem, combats depression)
When outside your body slows down, helping you feel peaceful and calm.
Walking side by side in a shared space means neither of us own the environment it can put you at more ease
You have a few options:
1. We can walk into the woods and stay for a while, and experience your surroundings, we can walk along the beck back and forth. There’s lots of options on this route. There is a steep hill but there is plenty of time to take your time.
2. We can meet in a local Park/field and walk the edges. Perfect if you want to walk or meander.
You choose. What do you need?
Our first session will be In The Caravan Clinic or Online so we can get to know each other and agree how we are going to work. Then ‘hi ho’ it’s off we go!
