About me

I am a warm, open person who has been a counsellor for over ten years. I am therefore experienced and can provide a safe space for you to explore what is troubling you, in a non-judgemental, totally confidential situation. My counselling orientation is basically as a ‘person centred’ practitioner. This means I take my lead from my clients. However I have knowledge and experience of working in different ways and so open to exploring the best and most effective ways to support you. I am also available after normal working hours, from midday till 7pm five days a week. I like to meet potential clients for an initial session and then if we decide I might be able to help you we would usually meet weekly. However that is negotiable. My fee is normally £40 for a 50min session.

  • in Higher Education as a lecturer in psychology.
  • I have been a volunteer counsellor for a charity for over ten years, as well as counselling children in the workplace.

I think mental health is so very important and much misunderstood. I am passionate about providing support for those who find themselves temporarily adrift, enabling them to make the adjustments required to regain their equilibrium. I believe counselling offers them a safe opportunity for individuals to experience growth and change.

I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
