About me

I am a person-centred solution focused therapist and I have experience in both private and voluntary sectors, and a qualified well-being practitioner registered with FHT and offer an array of Well-Being therapies including nutrition and kinesiology muscle testing.

I provide a safe space to explore and work through issues that may have become overwhelming to manage, at a pace that suits you. I am able to offer face-to-face counselling, online or telephone support.

I have BA (Hons) in Counselling and I have over 10 years' experience working in statutory and voluntary sectors including domestic violence and 4 years working in palliative care providing emotional support working with patients and their families with end of life, bereavement, cancer and illness related issues.

Stress, life changes, bereavements, divorce, addictions, trauma, family/relationship and workplace difficulties can all contribute to low moods, increased anxiety, and loss of energy, focus and motivation.

Dementia aware and trained.

Counselling can provide a confidential space and time to talk, where you can begin to feel supported and heard, and gain the self insight you need to help you to move forward.

I respond promptly to all enquiries and I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

Parking available. DBS Checked.

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.
