About me

I've been in private practice for many years and seen many different people, with many different problems, anxiety depression, corona virus; associated problems. Understanding that making the first step is hard, seeing a complete stranger.

I'm easy to approach and none judge mental, making my clients comfortable and safe in a relaxed atmosphere.

As I have a learning disabilities background it helps me understand how hard it can be to discuses your problems. Taking time to listen and understand, without any rush.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a very successful person cantered counsellor with a degree in counselling.

I have run my own private practice and have developed many skills over the years.

I volunteer for McMillan/NHS cancer at st James hospital. Plus work with clients who have learning disabilities , mental health and challenging behaviour

I'am also a published author crossing many variations of counselling

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.
