About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor and offer safe and confidential counselling, in a relaxed atmosphere. The counselling can be either long or short term and is at a pace that feels right for you.

Counselling does not offer advice but aims to help you explore your thoughts and feelings enabling you to re-evaluate and discover the best way for you to make changes to improve your life and relationships.

Below are some of the areas that I can support you with:

  • Bereavement and loss - unresolved grief may still be held many years after the event
  • Stress
  • Anxiety, worry, panic attacks and feelings of not coping
  • Low self esteem,lack of confidence, feelings of inadequacy
  • Depression
  • Abuse
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Emotional problems
  • Work difficulties including bullying and harrassment
  • Health problems including terminal illness.
  • Addictions, gambling, drugs, alcohol.
  • Life changes
  • Behavioural difficulties
  • Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCDs)
  • Post traumatic stress
  • Self harm

I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society ( and an Associate Member of the BACP and am bound by their code of ethics for good practice.

I am fully insured and hold a current CRB check

I can be contacted confidentially on 01268 560163 and 07857444565 (please leave text message/voicemail) or by email.  Evening and weekend appointments are available.

Once you have contacted me the next stage is to arrange for you to attend an initial consultation. The initial consultation is free of charge and will enable you to decide if counselling is right for you and that I am the right counsellor for you.  Subsequent sessions, should you choose to go ahead, are usually weekly.

Please note: If I am with clients I will be unable to answer your call but please do leave a message and a contact number and I will return your call as soon as possible.
