Sometimes life can be tough. It can help to talk things over; whether it’s about things that are happening now, or things that have happened in the past. You may find it easier talking to somebody who is not a family member or a friend: someone who’s not directly involved.
As a Person-Centred counsellor, I believe that you are the person who knows yourself better than anyone. Working together in a safe, mutually respectful way, I hope to be able to offer you the time and space in which to explore the feelings and issues you choose to talk about.
I will offer you support in a non-judgemental way, and will help you reach your own understanding rather than offering you advice, or telling you what to do. Working together, counselling can help you reflect on whatever may be troubling you and enable you to feel unburdened and able to move forward in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor and supervisor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Young persons under the age of 16 will need the consent of parents or carers.
I have experience working both as a school counsellor and with a Youth Agency based in High Wycombe.
I attend regular additional training courses and workshops to support my training which include issues such as Eating Disorders, Loss and Bereavement, and Anger Management.

- Carer support
- Child related issues
- Eating disorders
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
Counselling sessions last for 60 minutes and are usually offered on a weekly basis at a time and day to suit us both.
The first session will be a chance for us to decide whether we feel we can work comfortably and effectively together. It is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have, and for us to talk about what you would like to get out of counselling.
The first session for individuals is charged at £20, and each subsequent session is charged at £40.
The first session for couples is charged at £25, and each subsequent session is charged at £50.
Fees are payable on the day, by cash, personal cheque, or bank transfer by prior arrangement. If you are a student, or would like to talk about fees; please ask.
You are welcome to email or phone me.
If you are unable to attend a session for any reason, I ask that 24 hours’ notice is given where possible.
