About me

Getting to this stage and actively looking for a counsellor is a big step forward. It takes courage to make the initial contact.

You may be struggling with any number of issues or problems and need to get them off your chest. Let me help you feel better and lead a happy, balanced and fulfilled life.

I am an experienced counsellor, warm and down to earth. I am married with two teenage children and an assortment of animals. I love the outdoors.

My counselling room is a safe, calm and confidential environment in which to work with you. We can explore your worries and concerns, I will accept whatever you bring.

My practice is located in the heart of the South Shropshire countryside. It is easily accessible from Cleobury Mortimer, Clee Hill, Tenbury Wells, Ludlow and Kidderminster.

Training, qualifications & experience

My counselling training is person centred and this is the basis of how I work, building a trusting therapeutic relationship in which positive change can take place.

I do integrate other skills and techniques when appropriate, such as:- elements of psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), transactional analysis (TA), and mindfulness.

I have a particular interest in addictions born out of personal experience. I have worked for Pathways to Recovery and Aquarius Shropshire in recent years, helping individuals over come the harms of alcohol.

In addition to my private practice I have been a voluntary counsellor for North Worcestershire Bereavement Support (NWBS) since 2011, helping people deal with the loss of a loved one.
