About me

I offer an opportunity to explore difficult feelings and emotions in a safe, confidential and calm therapeutic environment.  Working with a counsellor in a mutually collaborative relationship can allow you as an individual to gain new perspective and insight into whatever might be troubling you. The demands of daily life can often seem overwhelming and the ability to talk to someone who will listen both with respect and without judgement can empower you to fulfil your potential.

I work as an integrative counsellor.  This means I draw on techniques of different therapeutic models (Person Centred, CBT, Transactional Analysis and Existentialism) in order to tailor my approach to your specific needs.  My work is in accordance with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists of whom I am a registered member. I am fully insured and I undertake regular ongoing professional development.  I also meet with a counselling practitioner on a regular basis to ensure that I maintain a high standard of expertise.  

I assist in a tutorial capacity teaching Counselling as a subject within the adult learning sector and I specialise in providing personal therapy to students undertaking counselling qualifications.

Considering Counselling can often feel a little daunting but the investment in personal wellbeing can prove life enhancing. An initial session is offered with no obligation to commit further unless you are happy to do so.

Areas of counselling I deal with

I have experience in a wide range of life issues including loss, relationships and anxiety.


I believe that financial constraints should not prevent anyone from accessing high quality counselling. As I am fortunate enough to have my own premises with off road parking (thereby reducing my overheads considerably), I am able to offer a rate of £25.00 per 60 minute session.

Further information

I am a member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).  I am committed to ongoing professional development and am fully supervised by an independent practitioner.
