About me

My background of many years’ experience, in palliative care nursing directed me to qualify and practice as a person-centered integrative counsellor/ psychotherapy with an interest in loss grief and bereavement and the complex issues we feel.

I have worked for Cruse bereavement as a volunteer since 2017 and a local GP surgery supporting patients with symptoms of loss, grief, bereavement and other issues that might be challenging to self-esteem or, causing symptoms of mental and physical stress: - headaches, poor sleep, irritability, social isolation.

Sometimes we can just feel overwhelmed with difficult emotions that might not be related to any specific event and feel powerless to change them.

We will explore your internal thoughts and feelings and personal challenges using an integration of approaches suitable for you personally. My central focus is to offer a space and time that is welcoming, judgement-free, professional and safe, to work with the many different and diverse reasons why people may choose to talk with a therapist.

What could I help you with?

Anxiety, Loss, grief and Bereavement, traumatic death, Cancer, Health related issues, Self-esteem issues, Stress, past experiences that might be causing you problems in your life today.

Types of therapy:

Integrative Relational Person-Centered approach, elements of a creativity therapy, Mindfulness,  and consideration of existential phenomenology.

How do I deliver?

Long term face to face work, short term face to face, telephone counselling short term, also online counselling available on request.

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.
