About me

We are living through challenging times. Many people are finding that mood and anxiety are more difficult to deal with, lots of things are out of our control. There are fewer positive distractions and often more time to worry.

I am currently working online or by phone. Both work really well. I am an experienced individual and couples counsellor. Whether you have been affected by relationship difficulties, divorce or separation; have been the victim of abuse; or have suffered with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, or bereavement, counselling can support you through difficult times and offers the opportunity to choose different paths. I work with people to identify and manage the changes they want to make in their lives.

I also can support people while they address weight management issues, or eating disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia.

Personal counselling could be the beginning of a change in direction, confidence and achievement. It can develop stronger relationships and enable you to communicate better with those around you. Winter months can be especially difficult for some, counselling can help develop coping strategies.

Therapy is tailored to the individual and their needs, as everyone is unique.

I am an Integrative Counsellor. I am a couple counsellor for Relate. I have trained in Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred and Psychodynamic practice. I am an accredited member of BACP.

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.
