About me

Are you looking for a counsellor?

Life can throw lots of tough challenges at us, and right now life seems a bit crazy. Sometimes we all need support, this situation with the corona virus has caused lots of problems especially loneliness.  Whether you feel anxious, depressed or just don't know what is wrong then please call me, I could help you.

Maybe its not for you,  is it your child/partner that you feel is in need of help? Are they withdrawn/angry displaying inappropriate behaviour? There are so many issues that can effect our day to day lives. I'm here to help, so call me, txt me or email me, we can talk, I can listen, or if you need to chew someone's ear off I'M HERE. Don't try to struggle on, on your own... get in touch, don't be afraid, I can help.

What I can provide

I can give you my undivided time and attention, no matter what you want to bring to counselling even if you think that it's not worth talking about it's your issue, it is worth it. I will offer you my full  support, I work with adults, young people and children with a range of issues, stress-related issues, including work/school/college stress.  Change, trauma, bereavement (including pre-bereavement, pet bereavement and family group work) personal and relationship issues, anxiety and loneliness.

Counselling sessions that I provide are held in a calm, safe environment, confidential and professional. Sessions would be tailored to suit how you, the pace which we work at, the subjects that you want to explore how many sessions you feel you require, counselling can be short or long term. I employ a variety of techniques in my counselling sessions, again tailored to your needs.

What to expect in your first session

This is a time to explore, what's brought you to therapy, and what you hope the outcome will be. Also, it's a time to ask and answer any questions we may have for each other, and also to discuss what we both expect, boundaries etc. It's a chance to see if we feel comfortable working together. There is no obligation or pressure attached to this meeting. It's just a, 'getting to know you meeting,' So why don't you come and see me, come on in and have a nice cup of tea!

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
