About me

Come along to an initial session and judge for yourself whether counselling/psychotherapy is for you. You might be surprised how it could enhance your life and help you to cope better with difficult situations. I believe in the following statement by James Hollis (1998): "I am not only what happened to me; I am also what I choose to become." In therapy we would explore what happened to you in the past and how that might influence your thoughts, feelings and behaviour in current situations. Thus you would become aware of your patterns and find choices how you might want to change in order to achieve different outcomes.

Counselling and psychotherapy has always attracted me as a profession because I enjoy working with people from all different walks of life. Whatever your issue might be I offer empathy and a non-judgmental way of working with you, hoping that you will leave the last session with the genuine feeling that you have achieved what you came for: to feel better and more able to cope with life in general or with a specific issue.

My counselling training took place over the last 15 years and is still ongoing as I believe it is important to keep knowledge updated. I trained in humanistic counselling (Person-centred, ExistentiaI, Gestalt) and in CBT, Transactional Analysis and recently qualified as a NLP practitioner. I offer therapy for indiviudals (16 years +) and couples in English or German. For many years I have worked at GP surgeries and for the NHS.

I work from home and my hours are flexible from Monday to Friday. In addition I offer telephone counselling and online counselling (either live via skype or per email).

I am BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) senior accredited and registered with UKRCP (United Kingdaom Register for Counsellors and Psychotherapists).

My counselling experience started as a befriender for the National Schizophrenia Foundation. Then I trained with and joined Cruse Bereavement Care, working for them as counsellor, supervisor, referral secretary and prison coordinator. From 1999 until 2001 I volunteered for RASASC (rape and sexual abuse support centre).

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.
