About me

This is a time of stress, anxiety,and perhaps loneliness and isolation. At times like this it may be that you feel vulnerable and that your emotions are overwhelming. It is not unusual for stressful circumstances to raise past difficulties that you thought you had dealt with or successfully buried. Counselling provides a safe environment in which your deepest concerns are heard with values of care, support and respect. Although we are unable to meet face to face, online counselling provides an opportunity to get the support you need.

As your counsellor, I listen without preconceptions or judgement, to whatever you bring. I offer space for self-reflection, resolving issues and self-development. I will not give you advice or tell you what to do but I will be with you to help you on your personal journey as you explore and make your own decisions.

I use an integrative model, meaning that I combine a range of different approaches in order to support you in a way which works best for you.

My approaches include: Psychodynamic, Person Centred, Human Social Functioning, Rational Emotional Behavioural Therapy,Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, etc.

After initial contact by phone or email we can arrange a session. You will be given the opportunity ask questions and concerns you may have about counselling before starting your counselling journey.

At first we may meet weekly or fortnightly depending on what suits you and the number of sessions will depend on what you need and bring. You will be given the opportunity for a review at regular intervals to assess and consider progress and give direction for the way forward.

Training, qualifications & experience


Advanced diploma in Counselling

Certificate in Supervision

Everyone is totally unique and so my experience over the last 18 years has been with men, women (adults and teens), with a wide variety of presenting issues and needs.

I would refer you to another professional if we agreed your journey would benefit from a different experience.

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.


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.

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.

Easy parking in the driveway and then 2 small steps into the counselling area.
