About me

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 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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I currently work in my own private practice.
I aim to help with many different issues including anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. I also have previous experience with rape and sexual violence victims and their families, and people suffering with suicidal thoughts/actions.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

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.
