About me

I am a qualified counsellor with over 12 years experience.  I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their guidelines.  I retrained in counselling as I whole heartedly believe it can help us transform our lives. I believe in providing a caring, non-judgemental, confidential environment where clients can explore difficult themes, and gain insight into how to become freer to make positive choices in their lives going forward.

Many of us will have times in our lives when we may need someone to talk to. Often talking to family and friends can be helpful, but it may be that this seems too difficult, or that the issues are at home? This is why talking to someone who is impartial can help.

I have worked for a large Employee Assistance Programme.  I gained experience of working with trauma, through PARCS. I have also previously volunteered for the Samaritans and MIND.  My Continued Professional Development is extremely important to me, and I regularly attend training and seminars

Feel free to contact me for further information if you would find that helpful.  You can contact me on the telephone numbers as above.  Please be aware that I may not be immediately able to answer, however I will get back to you as soon as I am available.

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.

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.
