About me

Hello, are you feeling stressed or anxious, do you have family/relationship issues, is depression or anger an area you need help with?    

Do you feel you need someone to talk to in confidence but not sure if counselling is what you are looking for? I am a very experienced accredited counsellor with 20yrs experience; to arrange an initial assessment, at the reduced rate of £10, give me a call or email me today to find out if counselling is what you are looking for.

It can sometimes be difficult for some people to maintain a good relationship with family and friends.  In an ideal relationship we have support to help us cope with what life ‘throws’ at us but it can often be difficult to work through feelings and problems with our nearest and dearest.  Sometimes, what we have to face on a daily basis can be too much to bear and we need some help and understanding to cope, this is when counselling could help.

Many areas where counselling can be of help is if you are having relationship issues, feelings of sadness, anxiety, loneliness or depression, feelings of confusion, anger, low self-esteem, lacking confidence or feeling stressed. Is bereavement causing you concern, or just struggling to cope with every day life? Then maybe it might help to speak with someone outside of your close family or friends.

Counselling takes place in a calm and relaxed environment where your privacy and mental health is of paramount, allowing you to talk about what is on your mind and help you understand any difficulties you are experiencing and your role within those difficulties.  Counselling can be emotionally demanding at times but with help and support can enable you to grow psychologically.

You may only need 1 or 2 sessions to talk through what is bothering you and that is OK but if you need more that's also OK so call or email me today for an initial appointment, at the reduced rate of £10, to see if what I have to offer is what you are looking for.

I have worked as a Counsellor for 20 years providing counselling for adults, from 18-80, in the High Wycombe and surrounding area, both in private practice and as a volunteer for Buckinghamshire Mind. I am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and follow their ethical framework.

Prior to becoming a Counsellor I worked for many years in the world of commerce, the caring profession and raised a family.

I won't
- analyse you
- give you advice
- tell you what to do
- be judgemental.

I will
- help you find your own solution
- help you live your life the way you want to
- be there to listen to whatever you want to talk about
- keep everything you say confidential


With grateful thanks for all of your help and support (I am still practicing the homework).

Female client

I can’t thank you enough for your help, for listening to me and not judging me.  You have got me through a very difficult period in my life. 

Female client

Awesome, helped me so much, I can't even begin to describe how much but I have improved so much, I'm starting to get my life back on track.

Female client

I think this counselling is really effective, wish I had been able to talk to someone like you 30 years ago but it's never too late.  I am now feeling totally normal and have ideas on how to find strength to carry on with my life.
