About me

I am an experienced, fully qualified person-centred counsellor, offering a warm, safe and confidential space where you will be listened to without judgement and where you can start to unravel whatever may be troubling you and has brought you to seek help. I have experience working with a wide range of issues and offer both short and long term counselling.  I am based in Hadleigh, Suffolk and also in Dedham just outside Colchester.   When required, I can offer video and/or telephone counselling.

We can often feel overwhelmed and unable to cope with everyday life or by past experiences that come back to haunt us. Or we may suffer a loss or trauma that  we just cannot bear. Working with you and being led by you, I will help you explore your feelings in a supportive, non-judgemental and respectful way enabling you to find greater self understanding and self compassion, allowing you to move forward in your life.

Getting in Touch: Taking that first step to seek help can be so daunting but it is often the most important step you'll make.  If you email me first, I can then get in touch with you and arrange a suitable time to have an informal chat over the phone so you can decide if you'd like to book an initial appointment with me. Finding the counsellor who is right for you and who you feel comfortable with, is really crucial in you gaining the most from your counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience


BA Hons in Counselling Studies, University of Essex; Diploma Person-Centred Counselling, University of Essex.


As well as my established private practice, I have also worked as a counsellor at a local hospice where I saw family members of patients as well as patients themselves and the bereaved. I worked for many years as a counsellor for students at the local sixth form college and also as a counsellor for the charity Home-Start, offering short term (ten weeks') counselling to parents.  I have a wide range of experience with people of all ages and from all walks of life, dealing with many issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, relationship and family problems, abuse, trauma, self-harm, low self-esteem and confusion, amongst others.

Additional Training & Workshops (Continual Professional Development) includes

I am continually developing my professional practice through regularly attending courses and workshops. 

These include: working with suicide; loss & bereavement; self-harm; working with relational trauma & dealing with disorganised attachment; working with shame; working with uncertainty; solution focused therapy; counselling at relational depth; working with older people; creative therapy; mindfulness; on-line and telephone counselling.

I also hold a certificate in CBT skills (cognitive behavioural therapy)

As a Registered Member of the BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
