About me

I am passionate about enabling you to be the best that you can be, supporting and helping you to develop  skills to overcome difficulties that you may be facing. We will work together to help you understand problems you are experiencing and develop positive changes in your life.

I am a professional and very experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor, offering long and short term therapy for individuals, couples and families.

I am an integrative therapist with training in  a range of therapeutic approaches. This enables me to adapt our work together to meet your specific needs and get the best out of therapy. I have skills and expertise in a wide range of problems and have a particular interest in relationship issues, depression and bereavement.

I will regularly review the work with you to ensure that you are getting what you want from treatment.

I work in the town centre of Ashbourne in comfortable, quiet and safe surroundings with adjacent parking.

I can offer day or evening appointments.

Please contact me on 07999 010207 for a short phone call to discuss your treatment.

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.

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.
