About me


My name is Denise.

I offer talking therapy in a confidential, safe and relaxing environment. It may be easier to talk about personal issues, in an alternative place, with someone who is not involved and is totally non-judgemental.

Counselling is my passion! I believe we were born to be real...not perfect. My belief in the process, how it works and in particular how the working alliance can help you to move forward never stops.

Person Centred Counselling is a non-directive approach. It provides therapeutic support and enables you, the client, to utilise free thinking. It is a highly effective way of personal growth. CBT counselling enables you to examine your thoughts with a behavioural approach.

"Feedback received from clients directly has always been of warm regard and in some cases clients have asked to see Denise again"

"I would not hesitate to recommend Denise to work with clients due to her warm and empathic nature".

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.

Our sessions together will be in an environment where you are free to express any emotions and feelings.  This can be with the aim for you to see yourself as a person who can change and has the freedom to do so within the therapeutic counselling process. Counselling can be useful to explore present and past issues. It can help with many emotions and feelings if you feel anxious, angry, worried, depressed, confused, bereaved or have low self esteem.
