About me

I offer counselling/psychotherapy to individual adults, in the Sutton Coldfield area of the West Midlands.

About Counselling
For many people it can be a big decision to have counselling or psychotherapy, but by exploring this site you have taken the first step. You can get more information from my website. (

Counselling and Psychotherapy can be helpful in exploring issues which have been troubling you on a short or long term basis. These may include:

  • Low self esteem
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Loss
  • Relationship issues.
  • Childhood issues.
  • Loneliness
  • Abuse
  • Bullying
  • Issues arising from long term illness or disability.
  • Work related issues.
  • Issues relating to infertility & miscarriage.

For many people, having counselling can be their first experience of feeling that they are truly listened to. As your counsellor, I will offer you space to express your feelings in a non-judgmental and empathic environment.

Counselling is not about giving advice, it is about exploring the issue together, to facilitate change or perhaps find a new direction.

My Practice
I work from my home (B73 postcode, off Monmouth Drive)  and there is street parking available. My counselling room is also accessible via a short walk from the bus routes that run along Chester Road and also along Jockey Road in Sutton Coldfield.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a counsellor/psychotherapist at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham. My degree is BSc(Hons) in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I adhere to the BACP ethical framework for the counselling professions.

Prior to qualifying as a counsellor, I worked in the NHS for seven years as a physiotherapist. My work was mainly with children (and their families) with long term disability. A lot of this work involved using counselling skills.

I undertake regular CPD (continuing professional development). Recent training includes:

July 2014- UKATA- United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis - TA101 Certificate.
Nov 2014- Psychotherapy of Grief, Mourning and Loss- UK Relational Psychotherapy Association.
June 2015- Relational and Integrative Psychotherapy Workshop - UK Relational Psychotherapy Association.
