About me

There will be times in our lives when we experience unwanted and difficult feelings which may seem overwhelming. We may be struggling with relationships, we might have feelings of anxiety or low mood. At such times, we may find it beneficial to reach out to a trained professional who can listen with compassion but without judging.

I provide a private, comfortable and safe space in which we can work together to help you to understand your particular situation. Frequently, looking at events in our pasts that may have influenced us can help us to understand why we feel and act the way we do; this can enable us to change how we manage things now and in the future.

I am a qualified counsellor with more than 14 years’ experience and have worked in a variety of settings. From 2009 until recently, I was based in a local charitable organisation where I supported adults and young people providing individual counselling and therapeutic/ psychoeducational groups. I have in-depth knowledge of trauma related to childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault and domestic abuse. I have also counselled within schools, colleges and universities. I have worked extensively with people who suffered with: anger, anxiety, depression, low mood, low self-esteem, relationship issues, self-harm or stress.

How I work

I offer individual counselling for adults and young people aged 16 and over. This can be time limited sessions (6-12) or for as long as required (open ended). Each session lasts for 50 minutes, usually at the same time on the same day each week although I may be able to offer some flexibility. I offer both daytime and early evening sessions. Please do feel free to contact me regarding any questions or queries you may have, I look forward to hearing from you.

My practice is in Chandlers Ford, less than five minutes’ walk from the railway station and local bus stops. I am within easy reach of Eastleigh, Winchester, Romsey, Hedge End and Southampton and there is free roadside parking.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which sets ethical guidelines for the counselling I provide. I also hold the appropriate CRB/DBS checks to work with young people. I am fully insured.

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.

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.
