About me

I offer counselling to adults, young people and couples who may be feeling worried, distressed or stuck in their lives.

My aim is to help them gain an insight into what is happening - and how they are dealing with it. This brings about a new sense of self, a self-awareness, which then enables them to work through and overcome whatever the challenges might be.

I provide a safe space which is both supportive and confidential. I work with clients who are experiencing:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • trauma
  • the effects of abuse
  • separation/divorce
  • loss
  • low self-esteem issues
  • stress
  • women-specific issues
  • menopause
  • relationship problems

Couples counselling

Whether a couple has been together for a short time or many years, every relationship can face emotional challenges at some point.

Each couple is unique and my couples counselling sessions are structured in a way to help the couple:

  • find ways to communicate with each other in a more constructive way
  • identify external factors which might affect their relationship
  • learn more about why arguments escalate
  • negotiate and resolve conflicts where possible

What to do to get started

You can call, text or email me. I offer a free initial 20 minute session. This gives you the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have to begin with.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.
