About me

I am a qualified relationship counsellor, helping individuals and couples confidentially and compassionately with any relationship worry or concern they may have.  This may be in crisis or longer term, usually caused by miscommunication and misunderstandings, poor conflict management, life patterns, affairs, divorces, separation, intimacy issues, family interference and many other impacting factors.  

I offer a free 15 minute consultation, short solution focused therapy or a longer term in depth look at how relationships are formed, maintained and improved upon.  We explore what could be happening and what might need to change to achieve better outcomes and for everyone to feel well and happy.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • CPCAB Relate Diploma in Relationship Therapy
  • Sex Therapist in training
  • MBA, B.Soc.Sci.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Any area that affects a couple relationship would be a concern to relationship therapy, impact of a child with ADHD or autism for example, or military relationships, all factors impacting relational communication can be discussed more broadly.

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.
