About me

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor. I offer safe, confidential counselling in my own home where you will be warmly accepted.

As well as my private practice I've worked for a local Counselling Service mainly seeing referrals from the NHS and I co-facilitate a group, run by a leading mental health charity, that gives support to people that have been bereaved by Suicide. I am also a trained bereavement counsellor.

There are times in our lives when we feel unable to cope. Sometimes it may seem as though there is no clear way through our troubles.

Talking confidentially to a Counsellor, who is skilled and impartial, in a safe space can give us time to see more clearly what is going on in our lives and to find new solutions.

I believe in accepting people unconditionally and building a genuine and warm relationship where we can work together to help you to find new ways of coping or changing and growing in confidence and self awareness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an 'Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling' Which is accredited by the British Asssociation for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
My training is 'Integrative' and draws from 'Person Centred', 'Gestalt', 'Transactional Analysis' and 'Psychosynthesis'.

I am also am a trained Cruse Bereavement counsellor.

As we are all unique I aim to tailor my work to suit the needs and personality of my clients.

All my life experiences have given me an empathy and understanding of the difficulties, fears and hopes that life can bring.
I am a member of the B.A.C.P and adhere to their code of ethics.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
