About me

Sometimes in life we can experience emotional issues that can often become too difficult for us to overcome. During these times it can be hard to talk to your family and friends.

I am an experienced counsellor working from a Person Centred approach. I provide a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space where you can explore your feelings.

I am based in a peaceful setting, my main focus is to work alongside you to find a way forward.

I work with adults, young people and children, suffering with a wide range of issues including:

  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Couples counselling
  • Work Related Stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Anger Management

Please phone or email me to arrange an initial session where we can discuss your needs and talk about what’s troubling you. There is no obligation to proceed at this stage, it is more an opportunity for you to explore whether you feel comfortable in continuing.

If mobility is an issue I am willing to home visit for the 50 - 60 minute session.

Thank you for reading my page.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is one flight of stairs to access my counselling room.
