About me

I continue to work face to face, but for those who would rather for whatever reason, I also offer online and telephone therapy.

Update 13th May 2021

Having recently had my second Covid19 jab, I am only a week away from maximum protection and I continue to self test twice weekly for all our sakes.
If you are struggling and would like to talk through a way forward, I'm happy to chat on the phone.
Or if you'd like to book an initial appointment, we can do that too.
Don't continue to struggle alone.

I offer a safe, confidential space, for individuals and couples, to talk through difficulties and challenges that may feel overwhelming. Together we can explore how these may have come about and look at the options.

You may have a relationship issue or stress at work. You may have had a bereavement or are just feeling isolated and alone. You may be feeling depressed and anxious or you may be struggling with an addiction or another coping disorder.

I am a qualified counsellor and adhere to a professional code of ethics. I am non judgemental and supportive and will try to understand you and your situation, enabling you to get a clearer picture of the way forward.

It can feel scary and uncomfortable but with support from someone neutral and outside your normal world, it can be a relief just to talk and can be surprisingly enlightening.

I work from a quiet village location, which has good parking and is wheelchair accessible.

I offer short or long term therapy for individual and couples

Update 15th April 2021 -

As the restrictions change, I am taking the opportunity to use the twice weekly self testing offered by NHS Test and Track.

You can too, although it's not a requirement to see me:


Update January 2021:

Covid-19 update January 2021 - I have moved my practice to my sitting room, which is twice the size of my consulting room and allows us to sit at a greater distance from each other; keeping us both/all as safe as possible in face to face sessions.

I do also continue to see clients online or do sessions by telephone.

I'm here to help you feel as safe as possible, whilst still able to access the help you need.

Update 15th February 2021:

As an independent practitioner seeing clients face to face I was lucky enough to be offered a vaccine for Covid19, which I got yesterday.
A few weeks before I get the first level of immunity, but really pleased to have made that start.
And my second appointment has already been booked for early May.
Well done and thank you to all involved.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BACP accredited professional qualification in Psychodynamic Counselling.

I have experience in counselling for a drugs and alcohol agency, a general counselling charity and a further education college.

Having worked for an agency delivering an NHS service under the IAPT scheme and seen GP referral clients ranging from 13 to 90, I have a considerable experience working with clients with a wide range of issues in both short and longer term therapy.

I have attended extensive further training courses including working with couples, psychosexual, beyond the dyad, sexual healing, abuse, depression and mourning, problems before and after bereavement, compulsive eating, relationships ending, working with trauma, body language and symbolism, love & hate, working with anger, dissociation, mindfulness, female sexuality, post traumatic stress, shame and OCD.

I've also had some training in IPT (Interpersonal Psychotherapy).

My experiences personally, in and out of the home, before becoming a counsellor add to my empathy and understanding.

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.

Key details

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.

Discrete, quiet village location with plenty of parking.
