founder Basel Counselling
"Your help with our daughter changed our family for the better."
"When everything around me was changing, you helped me find myself. When everything around us was changing, you helped us find each other."
"You helped me understand that I was right to think and feel the way I did at a time when I could not think or feel straight.’
"You healed our relationship and helped us to see and truly understand each other."
"It is good to know that if I ever need to see you again you will be there."
I am a highly trained, qualified and experienced UK Counsellor, Therapist and Therapeutic Social Worker with over thirty six years’ experience of helping children and adults, couples and families work through a wide range of problems.
