About me

Who am I and how might counselling help-

I am a Person Centred Counsellor and was a lecturer in a local college for over 20 years., teaching Veterinary Nursing. Having worked closely with students of all ages, I realised how important and helpful it was to offer support by listening. I understand how life and work often become difficult to manage and having a non-judgemental person to share your worries with, can help you feel less confused and more able to make useful choices on how to move forward.

Having experienced the benefits of personal counselling myself, I know that it takes courage to decide to talk to a stranger and how difficult it is to pick a counsellor from so many. Every counsellor is different and sometimes the first one you work with might not be the right match for you. Please don't think that all counsellors are the same; we all work in different ways and there is someone right for everyone.

What happens in counselling sessions?

I can offer a safe, confidential space for you to talk about anything that is causing you concern, worry, anxiety or distress. I offer face to face of online/ telephone sessions. I will not judge you, give you my opinion, advice or homework, but I will offer you empathy and the time to express how you are feeling. Together we can discover the right choices to lead you to a happier life.

Pet Bereavement therapy-

Being both a Registered Veterinary Nurse and Counsellor enables me to offer an understanding to bereaved pet owners that are struggling following the loss of their loyal companion. Owners can also be anxious about pets requiring general anaesthesia for surgery or with terminal illness and when is the right time to say goodbye. Sometimes other people in our lives might not understand why you feel the way you do about your pet and perhaps sharing your feelings with them is difficult. I can offer you a compassionate space to express your thoughts and feelings about your pet and how much you are affected by his/her passing away.

Support for College/University students-

Studying at college at any level and meeting deadlines or assessments can be extremely stressful and juggling your studies with life and (if you're an apprentice) work is often difficult. As an experienced college lecturer and practical examiner, I can offer a genuine understanding and offer support whilst you study.

I also offer workshops to groups, providing information on well-being, resilience and stress management.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
