How I work

When working with a client, I draw on lots of different approaches, tailored just to you, rather than a “one size fits all” approach. What feels right for you. Sometimes just being in a room can be too much for some people, so the counselling can even happen going for a walk, so it can happen outside the confines of a room. Different things help different people. Counselling can be through talking, through art, or through play for a child.

I have run the Nottingham Miscarriage Support Group for the last seven years. I started the group after experiencing a number of miscarriages myself, and finding there was no support for women in Nottingham. This has led on to an interest in counselling for men and women affected by miscarriage, fertility and baby loss.

I am one of the first counsellors in the UK to hold the Advanced Specialist Fertility Counselling Diploma and I am a member of the British Infertility Counselling Association.
