About me

Hello, are you feeling low? Not quite sure what's wrong, just not yourself? Or, do you have a specific issue or problem in your life, as an individual or couple, that you would like to explore? Either way, do you feel spending sometime talking to someone in a safe, confidential space, just for you, might help? If so, contact me.  The following is the jargon around what I do, but put simply, I can provide a friendly, safe, protected space, where the type of counselling is tailored to helping you with whatever you want to look at.
I am an integrative counsellor who uses a person-centred approach at the core of my practice. Integrative therapy is a stand-alone style of counselling which incorporates elements from a number of counselling philosophies including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and person-centred to name but a few. I use this integrative approach as it allows me to develop counselling which is suited to the unique needs of you as an individual, in a friendly, confidential, safe environment. Some of the beliefs I hold strong are that we are entitled to be our authentic selves, that we are allowed to be comfortable with who we are. I believe we can learn this and sometimes this requires some help. That is my role. I believe that it takes courage and time, to learn, grow and transform. I believe that the tools of exploration and contemplation can lead us to peace and self-acceptance. If this sounds like something you are interested in exploring further, give me a call.

I am a registered, accredited member of both BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and NCS, (National Counselling Society).  I have vast experience in many different areas, through my involvement in the field of social care, social work, counselling and other jobs outside these fields. I have worked with children and young people, and everyone in the middle, right through to older adults in the field of statutory, private, voluntary, not for profit organisations and charities. These experiences have been invaluable in providing me with a wealth of knowledge, skills and a continued thirst for self-improvement and helping others.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.

When I work

I offer online and face-to-face counselling, with both daytime and evening appointments, for children, young people and adults in a relaxing, peaceful setting in the centre of the town.

Further information

It can be a major decision to come to counselling and the right environment and person is an essential part of that process. I am a warm, friendly, gentle person, who builds good rapport with people in a non-threatening safe way.  One of my most important life goals is to assist others, where I can, in attempting to understand themselves in order that they might reach their full potential in life.  I am driven and committed to providing a comfortable, reliable, protected space, where a person can explore issues, difficulties and sometimes simply curiosities, in their life.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
