Many people ask "how can talking help"? 
"What can counselling offer"?

Counselling is a safe space, free from judgement. Often people can be their own biggest critic and counselling can help you identify this and find ways to be kinder to yourself.  Negative behaviours do not define who we are, they simply highlight unhealthy choices and responses to situations we find difficult to manage.

Emotions can impact on our ability to rationalise and counselling can be a safe space to see things clear again and find healthy choices.  We can learn how to process powerful emotions and develop resilience. It can be a place where we learn to trust again and feel more confidant. 

Counselling is a space to learn and grow and find your potential.

Personal Introduction

Starting a counselling career in 2006 I worked in Tier 3 Substance Misuse services up to 2015.  I set up a private counselling practise in 2012 part time and now work full time self-employed.  

In 2019 I completed a BA (Hons) Abuse Studies, which offers a multi-faceted insight into safeguarding, policy, and legislation.  

Also, for the last ten years I have delivered an add on Person Centred Counselling service for clients in specialist social care rehabilitation centres, which is ongoing currently.  I also offer telephone counselling for clients referred via EAP organisations alongside my private practice.

I also have delivered holistic therapies in the past and able to adapt to many cultural, religious and spiritual influences.

The main approaches in my work are Person Centred Counselling, Solution Focused Brief Intervention and Psychosocial Interventions (ITEP).  BACP registered (MBACP)

Common areas I work with are addiction, family/personal relationship issues, historical abuse, sexual assault, anxiety management, lifestyle balance, motivation, managing low moods, feeling suicidal, workplace issues, systemic discrimination, confidence and self esteem.

Contact Information

For further information you can contact me by phone or email, you can also text or leave a voice message and I will get back to you.

We can initially arrange a time to talk through your enquiry, free of charge.  I may be able to advise on various support options from myself or other organisations. 

Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly and tailored to your needs if you decide to try counselling. Options can start of with brief intervention or specific focus like anxiety management, with longer term support available for anyone who is not sure of a focus, but just wanting to try and make sense of why they may be feeling a particular way.

Member organisations


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.
