About me

I am offering telephone and video chat counselling during these globally challenging times. I am based in Heysham where I usually offer counselling to people willing to travel from any of the surrounding areas. At present you can access online counselling with me, wherever you may live..

Sessions will usually begin with one hour per week, but this is flexible to meet your needs.

Please contact me and If you leave a message I will get back to you to arrange an initial meeting.

I offer a caring, non-judgemental and safe relationship where you can explore your feelings. Once you are able to voice your inner troubles, you can begin to find clarity, peace and the ability to move forward in a positive direction.

There are many reasons people give for coming to counselling such as depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship struggles, bereavement, need for support with life’s challenges, unwanted overwhelming feelings,  loneliness, help with accepting a major life change.

When two individuals make contact for the purpose of counselling, this is the place when change occurs. Insight and contentment can begin to take shape for you. I can provide a counselling relationship which will allow you to feel safe enough to explore your challenges and problems.

I have worked with individuals who have asked for help with addiction, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bereavement, relationship problems; as well as those who feel there is a lack or void in their everyday life which they wish to understand and fill.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy and an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have a Certificate in Supervision.

I am a registered Accredited member of BACP.

In addition to my private practice I work for a charity on a voluntary basis. I have particular experience in working with individuals with addictions.

I also have previous extensive qualifications and experience working with individuals in education, advice, management and support services.

My work is guided by the BACP code of ethics.

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.

Further information

I am offering telephone and video chat counselling during the present pandemic, both to new and ongoing clients. This method of working is as effective and supportive as meeting face to face.

I believe that it is the therapeutic relationship itself which will bring about change.  This change appears to be deep and lasting as opposed to surface change.

My strongest belief is of the person as a motivated, creative and constructive being who will find a way to develop and be fulfilled.   When I look at this statement I can see it looks overly optimistic and naive but I arrive at it over a long period of time, through my observation of others as well as my own personal experience.
