About me

I have been working as a Counsellor in private practice since I qualified in 2000.

I specialise in Relationship Counselling,.working closely with families as a whole or as Individuals, children and couples since 2010.
I am a Humanistic Counsellor. I view with each person as an individual, even in a family/couples session, each person has their own identity.
I have a gentle approach to allow my clients to feel safe and comfortable to work on any issues they choose to explore, anything that is preventing them from living, from thriving and feeling good about themselves and others.
There is no age limit to have Counselling.

As human beings we are complicated; whatever your issue, or maybe there's nothing you can pinpoint ...just a feeling, I can help you re-gain peace of mind. To read more about how I work : counselling-family.co.uk

"We may be powerless to alter certain events, but we remain free to choose our attitude to them." Allain de Botton

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been qualified now for a little over 10 years with a BA(hons) Professional Studies Counselling at Chichester University. I am a registered member of the BACP and Member of the Association for family Therapy and Systemic Practice.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethics and framework. 

I am also a Qualified Family Group Conference Coordinator(Accred). I work part-time for Daybreak, (a registered charity) helping families re-build their lives.
In 2016 I embarked on further learning about the body as a whole studying at CNM. I learnt and continue to explore about the influence of our food intake (nutrition) and our health, both how it effects our well being and  our minds.  Our  ability to think good thoughts are affected by our diet.
My Counselling Practice looks at any issues that could be creating a feeling of 'emptiness' or 'out of control'.with excessive drinking or addiction, anxiety to disguise the feelings of helplessness.. These are the symptoms of deeper complex issues that will require exploration to bring back the balance & harmony.
My further studies include Homeopathy, nutrition and colour therapy.
We all need to connect, to relate, and this begins with our family or friends we call family. I work with clients on all issues but specialising in relationships, (including loneliness, addictions, stress) as these and other issues will affect how we connect/relate and get on in life.

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.

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.
