I am an experienced Accredited Registered Counsellor who is qualified and able to work with a vast variety of different issues; such as relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, stress and bereavement. I was a Specialist Palliative Care Counsellor and worked within a hospice for 11 years and I am experienced in working with cancer, health issues and loss.

I was a Consultant Counsellor at a local private hospital within the Psychological Medicine Department for 2 years where I saw clients with a variety of different issues . I am registered as a Healthcare Provider with many private healthcare insurers.

I am an Affiliated Counsellor for an agency offering counselling to adults who were sexually abused as children through the sporting world.

I offer one-to-one counselling sessions with adults and young people. I have a private practice, which I run from my home; this enables me to be able to provide my clients with a flexible, professional, quality counselling experience. My practice is based in a quiet and tranquil setting; it is easy to access and there is ample parking.

I am also a qualified Accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist and, where appropriate, can use hypnotherapy to underpin my counselling work. I am registered with The General Hypnotherapy Register.
