About me

COVID-19 UPDATE -  Telephone & Online/Video counselling available via https://onlinecounselling.today, (face-to-face appointments available once the covid-19 crisis is over).

I am a BACP registered Counsellor with over 12 yrs experience. I provide a tailored counselling approach for clients to explore troubling thoughts & feelings, such as anxiety, panic & depression and family or relationship problems.

As an experienced integrative counsellor, I can offer you a safe relationship in which you can explore anything that is troubling you in complete confidence.

You may be feeling upset and distressed and have problems with your feelings, thoughts, relationships with others, or behaviour. Have you experienced a sudden life-crisis such as bereavement or job loss? Maybe you lack direction and life doesn't make any sense.

My therapy is an integration of Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I tailor the therapeutic interventions to the client rather than make the client fit into one mode of therapy.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.


I offer counselling supervision for counsellors who require regular monthly supervision.
