About me

It can seem like the hardest thing to do to access counselling, but it can be life changing if you take that first step in contacting me. I help clients with issues such as suicide ideation, stress, low self-esteem, panic disorder, anxiety including generalised anxiety disorder, feeling sad and phobias.  I have helped many clients in getting back to work on the EAP (employee assistance programme).  I work with families, couples and individuals regarding relationship issues, family issues, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce and also bereavement.  I am doing face to face sessions at Shepshed and also telephone sessions as an alternative.

I also work with young people 18 and above with issues including life changes, gender identity, self-harm and relationship issues.  I am passionate about the benefits of counselling and the positive changes that good therapy triggers.  I use an Integrative approach which means incorporating many years of training and experience in psycho-dynamic, person-centred, systemic,  C.B.T. and solution focused modalities to bring about change.

I offer a non-judgmental and confidential service.  I am a fully qualified and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and maintain a high standard of professionalism by complying with the ethical framework and codes of conducts.

Many of my clients had no experience of counselling and had no idea what to expect.  Being comfortable with your counsellor is probably the most important thing that will allow you to explore the connections between your thoughts and feelings and move forward from feeling stuck or isolated, or going around in circles.

I mainly see clients in Shepshed near Loughborough.  It has easy access with ample free parking and accessible via public transport.  I see clients on a weekly basis, times and days to suit you.  I do not specify a minimum amount of sessions, you decide if you want to return.  Please contact me for further information on booking a session.

Please visit my website (see button opposite) for more information.

Training, qualifications & experience

Certificate in Counselling.

Level 5 diploma in Relationship Counselling.

Level 5 diploma in Integrative Counselling.

After qualifying and gaining extensive experience, some years later I went on to do further study to Level 6 and obtained a first class Bachelors degree in Counselling Solutions, incorporating C.B.T., Psychodynamic, Systemic and Solution Focused methods.

I am committed to continued professional development and life-long learning and access as many C.P.D. classes that time allows in order to be able to offer evidence-based therapy.  I have a current D.B.S. (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate.

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

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.
