About me

As well as counselling for anxiety and depression, I specialise in supporting survivors of child sexual abuse, bereavement and relationships. I am a qualified relationship counsellor and work with individuals and couples who need a safe space to explore their issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications include the BACP Certificate of Proficiency, a Diploma in Relationship Counselling, a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and an Advanced Certificate in Integrative Counselling.

Three areas I have specialised in are working with men and women who have survived childhood abuse (which includes neglect as well as emotional, physical and sexual abuse), bereavement and relationships. I spent two years on the NAPAC Support line ( and I am a counsellor at a local agency which specialises in supporting men and women as they work through issues arising out of childhood abuse, sexual violence and trauma. My experience of bereavement includes supporting people who have experienced many types of loss including childhood bereavement, the death of a child (including miscarriage and abortion) and bereavement by suicide.

Abuse and bereavement are just two of many life experiences which impact our relationships. I am a Relate trained and qualified relationship counsellor and work with individuals and couples who need a safe place to explore their relationship difficulties. I acknowledge that some men can find it hard to ask for help, but it is important to recognise that looking for support is a strength and not a sign of weakness. I try to work in a way which is male-sensitive and validates the positive qualities which men bring to relationships.

I am also a general counsellor and support people who are suffering with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, suicidal feelings, anger, symptoms of PTSD such as dissociation and flashbacks, trauma, loneliness and work-related stress.
