About me

Successful, 20+ years experience Loughborough, Leicestershire, Blackpool Psychotherapist/Counsellor & Life Coach, CBT, Person Centred, NLP, Time Line Therapy & Integrative Approach.  Supervisor. Hypnotherapist

Adults, children & young people, couples and family therapy. Supervision. I work from a beautiful, private log cabin in residential premises at Loughborough and also run an extra Practice in Blackpool

I offer a FREE 10 minute Discovery Call over the telephone. Having worked with hundreds of clients over the years, the key to the results they achieve is to ensure that we are a good fit together. This initial call ensures that.

As a fully qualified Online Counsellor and Supervisor, I offer ONLINE COUNSELLING & SUPERVISION, (including Email Therapy and IM) (Audio, Webcam, Zoom etc) and TELEPHONE sessions. I also offer the Face to Face Counselling in the client’s home (by arrangement if availability permits) and (when appropriate due to the current pandemic.)

Whether online or face to face, I work in a variety of ways according to the needs of the individual. I see that people are not their behaviours and are doing the best that they can with what they have. Everyone therefore has the resources within themselves to change and to achieve their maximum potential in life and to EXPAND upon it, RIGHT NOW.

Central to my work is the quality of the relationship and rapport between client and therapist. I provide a confidential, safe and trusting environment in which the person is free to explore their deep issues, ridding themselves of any limiting decisions and finding a totally positive way to move forward.

The different counselling methods I use include CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Person Centred, Humanistic, Gestalt Therapy, Integrative, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Time Line Therapy and Hypnosis, and Breakthrough/(Life Coaching) All of these are outlined in greater detail on my website along with client testimonials.

Before contacting me please do click on my website and visit the GET SET FOR LIFE section:


You will then get a clearer picture, and an even better feeling of how I work and understand what is right for you.

Whatever approach I use, I provide that 'space' where you can explore and be 'Yourself' without any judgement and to further your journey. In my experience the quality of the client-therapist relationship is by far the one of the most important aspects in enabling you to be 'empowered' and ultimately to totally transforming your life.

Treatment and interventions I use have all proved highly successful. For example, Time Line Therapy/Coaching is a very fast, cost effective, long-lasting and successfully proven technique. During this therapy, You and I work with the Unconscious Mind to get to the root cause of the problem.

In a BREAKTHROUGH (Life Coaching) session we not only work together to totally eliminate any negative emotion, limiting beliefs and phobias but during the sessions your values (which are responsible for motivation) are realigned and you get help with your future goals. The MindSonar® Profile Measurement Tool will also help you understand your thinking patterns in a specific context. (Check out the published article below)

The end result is that you get rid of all the 'baggage' that you may have been carrying over the years. This means you won't have to return to counselling. Imagine a complete overhaul of your car when you get it serviced. How much better will it run - and that's what you can get for yourself, right now. Help yourself feel good, now, and you can.

Look forward to seeing you either ONLINE/FACE TO FACE in Lancashire (Blackpool) or Loughborough (Leicestershire) or ONLINE anywhere in the UK and Worldwide and to talking to you soon. Take care.

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
