About me

Face to face resumed within the guidelines with special measures in place.  Also  offering zoom and telephone sessions.

I have been a professional health practitioner as a Nurse (1996) and a Counsellor (2010).  I am an integrative therapist with a strong person centered base.  I offer 1:1 counselling within an ethical contracted relationship and I see clients over 18.

I offer an assessment session to understand if I can meet your needs.

I feel very privileged to share the journey with my clients and I understand how challenging making a decision to come for counselling can be so thank you for reaching out. I can assure you of a confidential space where I will listen to you in a non-judgemental way.

If you are ready to take this step then please do call me or if you prefer to email or text I can come back to you.  Sometimes its hard to make that first call.

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.

Key details

DBS check

Wheelchair user access

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.

Our practice is all ground floor with a toilet on site.
