About me

I am a person Centred Counsellor. I believe that whatever the problem is, we all have the ability within us to find the answer. I will work with you to explore, gain insight into and look for a way for you to find the resolution to whatever it is that is bothering you. I will not judge. I will not give advice. I will provide a safe, comfortable and confidential environment to allow you the space, freedom and time to be open and honest with me and with yourself.

I also offer Reiki as an aid to reducing stress and providing relief during periods of emotional distress, grief and sorrow.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am a registered member of the BACP.

Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked for many years in a senior management role with a large number of staff reporting to me. I was responsible for their performance and a large part of our success as a team lay in motivation and emotional wellbeing. I learned an awful lot about people during these years and about what makes us balanced. I think this experience has stood me in good stead and given me a very good grounding in being able to offer help.

Over the past seven years I have been involved in establishing and running a voluntary counselling service, providing a service for those who cannot afford to pay fees and in addition, providing placements for students who are working towards their qualifications.

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-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.
