When you feel anxious, stressed or life is too overwhelming, talking to somebody can help make sense of the issues you are facing, bringing relief and changes into your life.
I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy for a variety of emotional and psychological issues like depression, anxiety, stress management, anger, eating disorders, abuse, bullying, relationship issues, self-esteem, phobias.
I have 30 years' experience working with children, young people and adults. Therapies I provide include CBT, integrative, psychodynamic, person-centred, Mindfulness.
Please email me or phone and we can arrange a free initial 30 minute consultation on the phone, Skype or ZOOM and I can explain how I can help you.
I have lots of interests, of which Art (I paint myself), antiques, walks with my dog and writing are my favourite.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
The initial 30 minute consultation is free. After this, my sessions last 50 minutes and cost £60 per session, (phone and online sessions are £50)
