About me

Initial consultations (30 mins) - Counselling sessions (50 mins)

I am a fully qualified and experienced Person Centred Counsellor. I have worked in various settings over my career and gained much experience working with clients, dealing with many issues, including anxiety, addiction, bereavement, mental health issues and abuse.

I now work from my private practice and I'm passionate about offering a safe, confidential space so my clients can experience healing and understanding.

Starting therapy is often daunting and it is very important to build trust and create an environment that is non-judgemental, comfortable and welcoming, so that we can work together on any issue that is important to you.

To help you establish if counselling will be helpful and something you would like to pursue, I offer a free, no obligation 20 to 30 minute consultation.

I am a fully registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of ethics, I am DBS checked, fully insured and receive regular clinical supervision.

Please note I do not offer counselling to anyone under the age of 13.
