About me

It’s been very uncertain times & it’s taken it’s toll on many emotionally , financially & physically , unexpected sudden changes , losses & now once again changing back into a ‘new kind of normal ‘ Leaving a feeling of anxiety , confusion & apprehension to leave the safety of the home .
We have children returning to school & feeling unsure of what to expect therefore emotions are mixed & high .

So it’s time we started taking care of our psychological health like we do our physical health ....

If you , your child or anyone you may know is struggling with anxiety , low self esteem, confidence , or life feels challenging in what ever area it may be , please do not hesitate to contact me for a free initial introductory session.

Give yourself the opportunity to offload without being judged. It’s such a ‘freeing ‘ feeling

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

How are you feeling?

Sometimes life may seem overwhelming, confusing, and challenging. Perhaps we are unable to cope with our day-to-day lives and need to speak to someone..but who? Someone who will not judge; but listen and understand.

Are you someone who bottles things up?

Are you someone who constantly worries about what people will say and think?

Have you seen a change in your lifestyle, e.g. appetite, lack of sleep, loss of concentration and/or energy?

Are you grieving?

Would you like to learn how to manage your anger?

Do you feel lonely and isolated?

Have you been through abuse and feel scared to speak up?

Do you feel that you are unable to cope with your children's behaviour?

Do you feel depressed and/or low?

Would you like to learn ways to boost your confidence and self-esteem?

Do you suffer from generalised anxiety or social anxiety?

Do you suffer from panic attacks?

Do you suffer from post-natal depression?

Do you have suicidal thoughts?

Do you feel that you are always stressed or get stressed easily?

Are you facing any work related stress, i.e. harassment, bullying, retirement or redundancy?

Do you feel betrayed by your loved ones?

Do you feel rejected / not accepted ?

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.
