About me

Does something need to change in your life? Would it help to talk it through? Being 'heard' is crucial to our development and ability to validate ourselves as worthwhile human beings.

I provide a non-judgemental counselling service in a safe environment to help you explore your concerns and gain control of your situation.

As an integrative counsellor, I am able to draw from a range of theories to suit your needs as an individual. Through counselling, I can help you to understand yourself and as your self-awareness grows, provide you with the opportunity for positive change.

Many people have been given a label for their difficulties such as 'depression' 'anxiety' or an 'eating disorder'. I work with the person, not the label, and through this help you discover your worth as a person.  Most of these issues have arose out of trauma in your life and are coping mechanisms that have unfortunately, perhaps seemed to have worked for a while, but have lead you to suffer further because of the negative consequences of these unhelpful coping mechanisms.

Whether you want a few sessions or need longer to work through a problem, I can help you progress. I provide a flexible and confidential service, built around your needs.

I am a fully registered and accredited member of the UKCP, to which I adhere to their code of professional practice.

I have regular supervision and undertake training regularly for my professional development. Periodically, I will engage with a personal counsellor to continue my personal development.

I qualified as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor in 2010 and have had a private practice since then, and also worked within NHS, employed by Mind mental health charity for 7 years.

I have worked with a diversity of difficulties with very positive results.  If you are interested in working with me, do call, and we can arrange to meet for an assessment after which we can talk about whether working together would suit your needs.

I can work face to face or by telephone/zoom.

Wheelchair user access
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.
