About me

Come and talk to me. I am willing to work with you to explore anything that’s making you feel anxious, stressed, frightened or unsure of what to do next. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by what’s happening in your life and would like time and space to talk about this to a qualified counsellor who can help and support you.

Trying to just ‘get on with things’ doesn’t always work. Sharing your thoughts with a counsellor can really help you sort through the muddle, mixed feelings and overwhelm. This in turn can bring you relief and lead to more contentment in your life.

I work with people of all ages, addressing a wide variety of issues including General Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Panic attacks, Relationship issues, different types of Abuse and the impact these have on individual’s lives.

Some people only require a few sessions whilst others continue for more long term work. This is your choice and we can discuss this.

I have seen many people who experience general anxiety, relationship issues, depression and panic attacks really benefit from the counselling process as they learn about themselves and how to feel in greater control of their own life. This leads to regaining a sense of fun and enjoyment in life.


It takes time

but talking to a counsellor can help you make the changes you decide are needed to enjoy life and feel contentment.

Talking to and sharing ideas with someone who listens without judging can help you gain confidence, develop a better understanding of you as a person and learn about what you want from your life and how you might achieve that.

My thorough training and years of continued professional development enables me to work with people on an individual basis focusing on each person’s unique needs.
Here you can talk in a safe confidential space and explore whatever is troubling you freely and at your own pace.

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.
