About me

My name is Grace and I have worked within the charity sector and have experience of working with children, young people and adults, providing emotional health and wellbeing support, as well as counselling.


I first started my journey working with children and young people who had experienced a bereavement. It was from there which I started my counselling training and continued working for a local charity, supporting children and young people with their emotional health and wellbeing. I have also worked with adults in a local counselling charity, adding to my experience in working with a variety of people, who face a range of challenges and adversities.


I wholeheartedly believe in the power of compassion, empathy and listening and therefore I am passionate about the impact which counselling can have. I feel privileged to be able to work alongside people throughout their counselling journey, and to be entrusted with their stories. 

I have a BSc (hons) degree in Psychology, as well as a Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills, Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies and a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which is a leading professional body for Counselling in the UK. You can read more about the BACP here. Throughout my career I have also completed training in: Solution Focused Therapy, Coaching and Sexual Exploitation and Violence training.

My Approach

I believe that you hold the answers within yourself and that counselling facilitates a safe space for you to explore and process your thoughts and feelings. I am led by you and counselling provides the opportunity for the you to lead your sessions. I listen free from judgement, and will support you to find your own answers; counselling is not a space where I will offer advice or opinion. Through working together we will develop a therapeutic relationship, which I believe is the foundation of you being able to grow, develop and focus on what matters most to you.

I specialise in helping people who often find themselves in conflict with their own thoughts and feelings, or who may worry that people in their life don't 'get them'. Clients who I work with can feel that their voices often go unnoticed by those around them.

They may notice this most when struggling to make decisions that feel right for them, or feeling torn between what they think and how they feel. This can make it challenging to be themselves and make choices that really matter to them.

If this sounds familiar to you, we can work through these feelings, find more genuine relationships and make decisions that align with who you are.

The Space

The counselling room is located in a discreet location in St Peter Port, regrettably it is not accessible for wheel chair access. Please get in touch if you are interested in having counselling and would require wheel chair access, to discuss alternative options.
