About me

Don't worry if you can't name how you are feeling. Don't worry if you don't understand what is happening to you. It is normal, it can happen at any time in your life. Our circumstances in life evolve but our emotions may need time to catch up.

I have experience in working with anxiety, depression, loss and grief. I am working with people bereaved by suicide, with issues with work and redundancy, with relationships and family issues, or suffering from lack of self-esteem or from traumatic experiences.

Counselling, is about being offered a safe place where difficult and disturbed emotions may be expressed and explored, in complete confidentiality, and without judgement or criticism.

I will be with you to contain your troubled emotions, and help you to manage and change them into something more acceptable.

Our initial meeting will give us the opportunity to have an informal discussion with no obligation attached.

Over the years I have been particularly interested in the subject of loss because it hides so many more issues than the loss we think we suffer from.

I have been a volunteer counsellor for the Cruse Bereavement Care Charity for more than 10 years. My on-going work with bereaved people keeps me humble. I am privileged to accompany them in their most difficult and challenging time of life.

I am a trained Psychodynamic Counsellor for Adults. I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I am an accredited Bereavement Counsellor and Supervisor for Cruse Bereavement and Care Charity.

I am also involved with the Samaritans/Cruse Project for which I facilitate groups of people bereaved by suicide and supervise their co-facilitators throughout the UK.

Prior to my training as a Counsellor, and before I started a family, I worked for 10 years for the International Maritime Organisation which is a body of the United Nations.

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.

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.
