Seeking counselling can be a daunting process, but seeing as you’re reading this information, you’ve taken the first step towards achieving your goal.
Choosing a counsellor is the beginning of your journey to a more confident and more resilient you.
You’re braver than you believe!
Stronger than you seem!
And smarter than you think!
And my aim as your counsellor, will be to make you believe this.
I understand how life can become difficult at times, life can throw us some difficult and traumatic situations. But if you choose my friendly counselling service, we can talk through and help you to process your thoughts and feelings.
Processing what has happened in the past, with me by your side, I truly believe that everyone has the potential to change and grow. We will be working towards a brighter and more positive future.
I am a friendly and down to earth, experienced counsellor. I work in the heart of Grantham town. My room, in Newton House, is private and quiet. I pride myself on creating a warm, safe environment for you to explore issues that are holding you back in life. We can release the break and discover what you want your future to look like. We can explore past issues that have caused distress, and through this exploration, you will find the issues less traumatic. Clearing the way to leave them in the past and move on.
I work with adults and young people, offering a humanistic person-centered counselling. This means you are in control. My aim is not to guide you to do things my way, but to work out your own unique ways. Sometimes your own views and feelings have been over looked, but my aim is to help you discover yourself.
Please call or email me for more information or to book an appointment.

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.
