Other areas of counselling I deal with

I specialise in the area of grief, bereavement and loss.  This is not always the loss of a loved one, but can also include the loss of a job, relationship or re-location. 

I also work with cancer patients, who are sometimes terminally ill, those who care for family members or friends with disabilities or have long term medical conditions.

I have experience in helping those who are/have suffered from epileptic seizures, which can be a life changing condition.

I have extensive experience working in a women only environment.  I worked closely with clients with many different issues, including miscarriage, domestic violence, addictions, sexual assault and rape. 

I also have extensive experience working with teenagers and young adults in a voluntary counselling capacity.


I believe the relationship between ourselves, is extremely important. If counselling is to be effective, you need to feel comfortable with me, therefore I offer an introductory session of £10, where we can meet to see if counselling is something you feel ready to begin.  If you feel you would like to arrange a further appointment, then we can do so, but there is no obligation.  You can always get in touch in the future.

I also offer a pre-arranged telephone and on-line counselling service.

The fees are £30 for a 50 minute appointment.

Reduced rate of £20 for students.

Further information

I offer flexible appointment hours, daytime and evenings and free parking is available.

If you feel counselling could help you, please call me on 07709563225 or email me,
