About me

I have some availability currently for counselling and supervision via Zoom.
Call me on 07973 452561 for an initial chat to discuss your needs

Counselling is helpful when life presents challanges such as anxiety, stress, depression, relatiionship problems, family issues, trauma.

My counselling approach is interactive and equal, myself and the client working together on the issues they bring.  I am interested in helping people feel a sense of belonging, and of courage to tackle what life throws at them.  We work together to find a way to change our response to difficulties, to give ourselves more choice.

In my private practice, I work with young people and adults, including families and couples.

I also work with couples, exploring communication, dealing with challenges as a couple, encouragement for the individual within the couple and how this can help resolve many issues.

I am also a qualified Family Counsellor, happy to work with the whole family, to explore the dynamics that cause friction in daily life, and to find ways to increase cooperation, so that each family member has a place in the group which is equal and valued.
I am a member of National Counselling Society (MNCS (Accred)).

I also offer supervision for counsellors and others in the helping professions.  This can be one-to-one or in small groups.  Contact me for details.

Therapies offered

  • Couples counselling
  • Family/systemic therapy
  • Humanistic therapies
  • Psychodynamic therapy


My fee for one to one and couples counselling is £45 per hour, although I have a limited number of client places for which I can offer a sliding scale, depending on financial circumstances, and I offer counselling to students for a reduced fee.

The fee for family counselling is £55 for a one and a half hour session, and this usually only requires one or two shorter follow up sessions.  Sometimes a first session of an hour is sufficient to start the process

I am also an experienced trainer, and am happy to put together bespoke training for companies, organisations who work in the counselling/caring/health fields.

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.

Wheelchair access would be possible, but please note I also work online via Zoom.
