Because you matter, because what you have to say matters, and because such a lot can change in a person’s life if only they can make that first step and be heard, my commitment is to provide you with this time for you to reflect, explore and move forward. I feel strongly about people being able to have access to counselling and confidential help when it’s needed and I am dedicated to this.
My therapeutic approach is calm and patient. I keep a very open heart and I am non-judgemental. So whatever you want to talk about, whatever is worrying you, I am here to give you my complete attention and respect, as we work together on a journey towards acceptance or change in your life. You will find a warm, professional and meaningful counsellor/client relationship in which it’s easy and comfortable for you to communicate.
As a fully qualified and experienced therapeutic counsellor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I work according to their regulations and guidelines for good ethical practice and work to a high standard. I attend regular ongoing private Clinical Supervision, training courses and workshops which form my Continuing Personal Development (CPD) continually required by the BACP. I offer face to face sessions in my private therapy room, or telephone sessions. I work with individuals, couples and families.

My fees for Counselling are £37 per session.
I also offer concessions based on circumstances.
Life coaching will be available from July 2018 at a rate of £45 per session.
After an initial telephone assessment, a free first session will be offered.
I completed my BSc (Hons) in Psychology, specialising in Cognitive Psychology, Child Psychology and Social Psychology, my diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and hold certificates including Theories and Skills of Family Therapy, Counselling Adolescents, Bereavement Counselling, Supporting Male Victims of Domestic Abuse, Solution Focused Therapy and others. As well as running my own private practice, I also work with Cruse Bereavement Services and with Families Need Fathers Both Parents Matter. I have experience working with a wide range of issues including relationship difficulties, depression, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, family issues, sexual abuse and bereavement.
My approach is person centred however some clients prefer a more structured approach for specific goals they would like to work towards in their life. This is a method that is sometimes included in the way I work with certain clients in my counselling practice, when appropriate. Additionally, I will soon be offering life coaching as another separate service from July 2018 onwards.
I take referrals from:
- Individuals & couples.
- Employee assistance programmes.
- National Health Service.
- Agencies & charities.
- Schools & colleges.
