About me

I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor who has been in the field for many years.  I am also a trained and experienced Clinical Supervisor.

I have worked with both Adult and Children sectors of mental health ( although with Children more around supervision) and have a wealth of experience of Supervising both client groups

I am very passionate about supporting both individuals and Couples experiencing any form of distress whether this be something historical, current or anything in the future causing any problem to you.  I care deeply about meeting your needs and work with you as opposed to telling you how or what to be. Of course I will be supportive in sharing my experience with you and any education, guidance or signposting should we feel necessary.

I really believe that the best outcomes are made based on how we get on, and for that reason I feel it is so important to be real with you and not the expert with the note pad and sofa ! I respect true autonomy and choice and really want to ensure you eventually experience that quality in your own life - what ever the problem may be.  I know from my own experience that asking for help can be a little daunting - but believe me some of the strongest men and women I know have faced their own fears and overcome them with the right person to talk to. 

I believe that through our meetings discussions and trusting each other that we can resolve the things that are bothering you.  This I believe cannot be done in a time limited way because we are all so very different.

Member organisations


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.
