About me

I'm an experienced, accredited Counsellor with 9 years of counselling in both private practice and a GP Surgery setting.  I have a special interest in areas such as stress, anxiety, depression, work related issues, relationship issues, grief, trauma, domestic abuse, loneliness and anger management.

My goal is to provide a professional service with warmth and humility, complete confidentiality and comfortable surroundings with a person centred approach.  I'm an integrative Counsellor, using various theories to underpin the best approach to meet the needs of my clients.

Counselling can be a slightly daunting experience for those who have not engaged before and it is my aim to allow clients to feel entirely comfortable, secure and confident so that they may speak freely and explore the issues affecting them.  Using a non-judgemental approach, we can consider our behaviours and implement change if necessary.  There is the opportunity to see how the past is impacting on present functioning and feelings.

I'm located just off the Hillsborough to Newry dual carriageway, in a private setting, just 5 minutes from Hillsborough and 9 minutes from Sprucefield.

I am fully insured by Towergate Insurance and engage in regular clinical supervision of my counselling practice.

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.

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.
