About me

Phil5I first became interested in counselling at a point in time when I needed more understanding of my life, my family, my relationships and the circumstances that I found myself in. I wanted to be able to change some of the patterns of behaviour which I felt didn’t surport me and to understand my thoughts, feelings and actions. To become more aware and mindful of what feeds me and helps me to grow emotionally, physically and spiritually.

I worked for a number of years running a secondary school counselling service. This reaffirmed my passion for working with the complexities of families and relationships.

I am married with a family of 4 children, 3 teenage girls, 2 of whom are my step daughters, and my son who is of primary school age. I have a strong belief in holding time and space for the family as well as for my own journey as a woman, mother, wife, and friend.
