About me


Thank you for visiting my profile.

I am an Accredited Counsellor and a Corporate and Executive Coach.

I have 20 years experience of counselling couples and individuals from various backgrounds with a wide range of problems.

I have qualifications in CBT/REBT, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Counselling and Corporate and Executive Coaching.

I have also undertaken studies in Addiction Counselling, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Transactional Analysis and other counselling and coaching approaches.

When working with clients, I put a lot of emphasis on forming a good therapeutic relationship. I  ensure clients feel comfortable and are able to share anything, without the fear of being judged or not respected.

I am able to help cients solve their problems within 3-6 sessions and recently some have left after 2 sessions, having achieved their goal.

I continuously receive good feedback from clients and some contact me years after having left therapy,  to inform me of how well they are doing. My approach, therefore, will not only help you resolve your current issue, but will have an impact on your future and how you deal with upcoming difficulties.

In the sessions you will learn a lot about yourself and be able to identify thinking and behaviour patterns, which might be unhelpful and could possibly be creating or maintaining your problem. Together we will work on how best you can change these patterns to more helpful ones.  All I ask of you is to be open to trying out different strategies, which are aimed at helping you resolve your difficulties. I can then guarantee that you will notice changes taking place very quickly. Clients have often remarked on how they expected to be in therapy for a long time, but yet after only a few sessions, they have managed to resolve problems, which they have had for years.

Often change can be frightening, but you will receive support and encouragement every step of the way, which will enable you to carry out actions, you never believed you could.  If additional sessions are required, these are provided, as my aim is to ensure you achieve your goal.

My training and qualifications have been gained over the
last 20 years. I have travelled to various locations such as: Oxford, Cambridgeshire, Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds, York, Glasgow and on numerous occassions travelled to London, in order to equip myself with various skills, which have proven to be very effective.

I enjoy learning new techniques as I am passionate about providing a service which is professional and does not require many sessions, therefore, reducing the cost to clients. The skills I have acquired enable me to really understand my clients and their difficulties very quickly and in helping them find a way forward.

I currently do quite a lot of work for Employees Assistance Programs (EAPs), Health Organisations, Private Companies and University, where I counsel and coach staff, with work related or personal problems.

Why not give me a call today, just imagine, 3-6 hours, your life could be totally different to what it is now.
