About me

I realise that due to the fight against Coronavirus, some people are suffering a loss of income , and are struggling financially. If you are in this position , I am offering concession rates . Please contact me, so we can discuss your rate .

I am currently only offering online , or telephone counselling.

I work within an integrative counselling model, which offers me the flexibility to work with you in a way which you find most helpful. This could be short term counselling, for example to help reduce anxiety or stress. It could be longer term counselling to explore past issues which are having a negative affect on your life and happiness now.

I work with my clients to form a strong working alliance between us, building trust, honesty, and mutual respect in order to provide an environment of open exploration into whatever is troubling you.

Some people find is difficult to express their feelings in words, so I often work with the transpersonal, other forms of communication. This could be using creative ways to work, for example drawing, or sand play therapy. It could be working with metaphor, or helping a client link their emotions to physical feelings. Everyone is different, so I aim to ensure each person is comfortable with the way we work together.

I work with individuals, and do not offer couples counselling at the moment .

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.

I work with the transpersonal, this could be using tools to help you access your emotions for example using sandplay, pictures or coins.

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.
