About me

I am a qualified and BACP accredited counsellor with over twelve years experience of working in various organisations and sectors  including  education sector, NSPCC, voluntary sector and NHS.

Seeking professional help can be difficult and that is why a open, trusting relationship between client(s) and counsellor is crucial for effective counselling. I offer a confidential  space to discuss and work through issues you may be facing.

I work with a variety of issues, both short-term and long-term counselling, depending on individual needs. I work integratively with a foundation in person-centred counselling, providing CBT and TA techniques where appropriate.

I offer counselling in the Dronfield area but within easy access of Sheffield and Chesterfield.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss how I can help you prior to starting your counselling by email or telephone.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.
