About me

At this difficult time I offer all forms of on line counselling. I am here to support you through this anxious period. With so much uncertainty around I can offer support to you on an individual basis.

If you are feeling confused suffering with anxiety or just unsure how to move forward, or just would like things to be different, counselling can help you work out where you want to go and enable you to move in that direction.

What counselling is : -

A safe place offering you acceptance as an individual. You will receive a warm, genuine and understanding approach. Sharing your unhappiness or unease with someone else can help you explore your burden and look at your problems in a different light.

As a humanistic counsellor, I know people are capable of leading full and rewarding lives. Occasionally we all get stuck and on our own are unsure how to move on. I offer a place that is safe to understand, explore and learn new ways of working with life’s challenges.

The belief of a humanistic counsellor is to give each individual a safe place to be heard, to heal and enable you to live a more full and accepting life.

I work with a wide range of issues

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and insured counsellor with a humanistic integrative approach. This approach allows you to be yourself and work in the way that most suits you. It recognises that every client has different needs and no one set model will suit everyone.

I am approved counsellor for Anxiety UK.

At different stages of your life you will need different support and working with the models of person centred, gestalt and transactional analysis will allow us to work together to gain the support you require.

Before I became a counsellor I worked in the financial sector and therefore I understand the problems people face with day to day living.

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.

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.
