Counsellor and psychotherapist

Adults, young people and couples



I offer a space to speak freely and explore what is happening for you without being judged. Counselling can help us move on from painful life situations and past hurt and value ourselves. Originally from northern Ireland, I have travelled widely before settling in France where I have lived for twenty six years. I welcome diversity and have worked widely in couples counselling and personal therapy with people from the international community.

Sessions take place in my office at Place de Gaulle in the centre of Antibes or online. The hourly rate is 50e.

My work includes the following specialisms:

*Building strong relationships
*Trauma and stress due to a range of reasons, unsafe childhood or other past experience
*Expressing anger, understanding panic and anxiety
*Work-related stress
*Grief and bereavement
*Self-recovery from physical or emotional abuse
*Survival of life-threatening illnesses or situations
*Trust and change for couples

As a therapist I maintain my honesty during our therapeutic work without judging you. In my experience of the therapeutic process, with the right conditions in which a person feels listened to and understood they will  gradually optimise their own strength and recognise their own identity  to decide on how they want to move forward with their own life. Growth and change are possible when respecting the other person's own pace on their journey into themselves, as they gain insight into life's difficulties and face other problems that may arise in the future.

I work for inclusion of diversity and have experience with people of varied backgrounds, nationalities, lifestyles, beliefs, sexual orientations and age-groups. I am used to working with people far from home and the issues of belonging that this can bring up.

As a qualified therapist I am an accredited member of the French Person Centred Association (AFP-ACP) and I abide by their code of ethics. I am also a member of the European Network for Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy and and Associate member of the Centre for Studies of the Person La Jolla CA.
