About me

I believe in offering affordable counselling so people from all walks of life can access it. Therefore, I charge £35 per session. Each session lasts 60 mins. I work from my office as well as offering home visits. I can help you to re assess where you are in your life and enable you to access the tools to work on issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Addictions
  • Anger Management
  • Bereavement
  • Confidence Issues
  • Couples Counselling
  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders
  • Loss
  • Relationship Problems
  • Redundancy
  • Stress
  • Work Related Issues

Entering into the counselling relationship may feel daunting. You are not weak or a failure. You know there is a problem and you want to solve it. Counselling may be short term; up to six weeks, or long term; over a number of months or years. We are all individuals that require support at times. I truly believe counselling works, enabling self fulfillment and the art of being true to yourself. Most issues are deep rooted. I help you to analyse your hurt, work with it, through it and find the missing piece of the jigsaw. There is another way to live, you just have to believe and go with the process. Take that first step, call me, you will never look back.

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.

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.
