About me

Are you struggling to cope?
Life has been especially challenging over the last 18 months and sometimes we all need extra support. Counselling provides a quiet, supportive and non-judgmental space where together we can explore whatever you are finding difficult in your life right now.  I will listen to you with compassion and understanding to work alongside you at your pace.

I offer support for a range of issues including anxiety and social anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, phobias, relationship issues, bullying and bereavement. I am here for you, for whatever you need to talk about in a warm, comfortable and confidential space.

I offer counselling for all of life's ups and downs; originally training in bereavement counselling this has become a specialty of mine and I have now worked in this field for over 10 years. 
Have you suffered a bereavement or loss? This may be the death of a loved one, friend or colleague, or, it may be a different kind of loss such as that of a relationship, your home, business or health. I am passionate about supporting people through what can be one of the most difficult times of their lives.

Are you a young person who is finding life difficult? Or the parent or relative of a young person who is struggling?
Working with young people is something I am passionate about. Having completed additional specialist training in young persons counselling, I volunteer my counselling services in schools in my spare time. I enjoy connecting with them to help them gain the confidence and tools they need navigate their way through adolescence and early adulthood.

Having had a career as a nurse in the forces, I also have a special interest in trauma and working with forces, ex-forces and emergency services personnel.

I offer a free phone consultation as standard to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
I look forward to hearing from you, warmest regards.

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.
