About me

Whether you feel your dilemma is behavioural, emotional or spiritual, I believe that in our working together you can discover more of your inner being and strengths and become enabled to move forward positively.

I am a Person Centred Counsellor practising integratively using a variety of techniques to assist my clients to find their solutions and then work towards their intended goals.

Your sessions are therefore - about you.

*** In addition to safe face to face sessions,I work with online platforms which are accredited as being encrypted and fully confidential - Signal, Teams,WhatsApp, or Zoom. ***

Training, qualifications & experience

Having had experience as a community and NHS  pharmacist, church minister, husband, parent & grandparent over the past forty odd years, I consider that I am able to understand the problems and issues that can trouble a human being.

Whether you come to me for counselling or supervision, you can be assured that I am ready, willing and able to help.

I have a Bachelors degree in Pharmacy, a Diploma in Counselling, a Certificate in Coaching and a Clinical Supervision Certificate and have held Ministerial Credentials. I have over 2500 hours of counselling experience.
