About me

Hello. The focus of counselling is you. I will listen & empathise with your situation the best I can and I care very much about the people I work with. I work with individuals, organisations & I also specialise in peace and conflict counselling. Background in the NHS, Mental Health charities & business.

I offer a warm & friendly counselling service & I am dedicated to supporting you with care, integrity & empathy.

I work with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, mental health, ADHD, Low self-esteem, family issues, workplace issues & a whole range of other topics. What better time to commit to therapy for your mental health and wellbeing than now, with the changes and challenges of our age - pandemic, war, new technologies, economic and social crises and more. You really can talk about anything in counselling.

Therapy offers a healing relationship and environment, giving you the freedom to think and talk about your current concerns, and what they mean to you. 

See website for more details:

Thank you for considering choosing me as your counsellor.

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

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.
