About me

Life can be tough and making these first steps to seek help can be hard and takes courage. I'm an experienced, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer individualised therapy to help those whether in crisis, looking to implement change or needing time to explore what's happening or happened to them. 

I offer a safe and non-judgmental space enabling you to explore and understand your situation better. 

I work face to face (COVID safe) in Ringwood, Hampshire, and by telephone or video call (Zoom) - suiting your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I specialise in working with adults and young people dealing with life changes, bereavement, loss, anxiety, depression, stress, anger and relationship problems.

I work in a variety of ways, which can be, in a Person Centred way,  using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or a mixture to suit you and your needs. I also draw on other types of counselling such as solution focused and mindfulness. I am a qualified one to one counsellor.

I believe that working together you will be able to find the way forward that is right for you and I can help you focus on what you may like to change and understand better.

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.
