About me

I have been working as a Counsellor since 2000. I am fully qualified having achieved my Diploma in Person-Centered Counselling from Warwick University in 2000 and I am a member of BACP.

I offer a friendly, safe, sensitive and non-judgmental space where you can talk about the issues that are affecting your life.

I have experience in working with both adults and young people who are struggling with relationships, stress and anxiety, panic attacks, self esteem issues and bereavement. I also have experience in Pet bereavement.

As mentioned previously, I offer a friendly, sensitive, safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore the issues that are affecting your life.   I have a very relaxed style of working whilst staying within professional boundaries. I receive regular Supervision to ensure that I am working safely and ethically and giving you the support that you need.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am Registered with BACP and have a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling.

I currently work as a one to one Counsellor and in the past have worked as a Counsellor and Trainer with Relate, worked for a number of years as a School Counsellor as well as offering counselling over the phone and working within a GP Practice.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My counselling room is on the first floor requiring climbing one flight of stairs.
