About me

About me

The Mooring Counselling Service is available to anyone who wishes to take some time out from the pressures and ‘storms’ of life in order to find a place that is safe, stable and supportive. I offer one-to-one individual counselling sessions for adults and young people.

I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor. I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and have also been awarded BACP Accreditation. My past experience includes working as a Teacher, Family Support Worker, Group Facilitator and Bereavement Counsellor. I now work as a Counsellor within a Young People’s Counselling Service and in my own Private Practice.

I have a special interest in, and experience of, working with transition, loss and ‘shattered dreams’ ie feeling as if ‘this was not how it was supposed to be’. This led me to set up The Mooring Counselling Service in order to support people through times of change, challenge and loss. I also have experience of working with a wide range of other issues including stress and anxiety, low self-esteem, addiction and relationship issues.

Why Counselling?

  • Are you struggling to cope after a death, divorce, diagnosis, dismissal or major disappointment?

  • Are you feeling stuck, lacking in motivation or confidence?

  • Do you find it difficult to manage your feelings?

  • Are your ways of coping harming you?

  • Do you often experience relationships as disappointing or depriving?

  • Do you carry with you the shadow of past events?

  • Do you want to take some time out to consider a possible new direction for your life?

Counselling may be able to help you begin to accept the unchangeable, make decisions about what can be changed, and to reconnect with your hopes and dreams so that you can find new ways forward.

Counselling provides an opportunity to explore the issues that are concerning you, maybe fully for the first time, within the context of a professional relationship that is supportive and free from judgement. Often coming to a place of acceptance of yourself and your situation is the beginning of change. Counselling can help you to enjoy greater emotional and relational health; in short to live life more fully.


The Mooring Counselling Service is located in Market Deeping which is easily accessible from Stamford, Peterborough, Bourne and Spalding. Counselling appointments take place at The Deepings Community Centre. The room affords comfort and privacy with easy access, free car parking and toilet facilities.

Please note that in the light of the current coronavirus situation I am continuing to offer counselling sessions to adults initially via telephone and to include online going forward.


Weekday and evening appointments normally available.
