About me

If you are experiencing a difficult time just now, I can offer immediate support.

I provide a confidential service in which you have freedom to speak about anything which may be troubling you.

Short-term counselling can often be very helpful rather than longer term - I am experienced in both, whichever is appropriate. 

An initial assessment will provide an opportunity to explore this and for you to decide if I can support you in either finding a solution or coming to terms with your difficulties.

You can receive support through counselling for many reasons:-

  • the loss of someone close to you
  • the painful experience of a difficult relationship in your personal life or at work
  • coming to terms with any significant change in your life - redundancy, divorce
  • work-related issues which are affecting your life at home
  • trying to live with the effect of someone who is bullying you

These are just a few difficult situations; however counselling can help you during any difficult time which is bringing emotional pain or stress into your everyday life, including anxiety, depression, bereavement and trauma.

Why not get in touch with me to ask for more information or to book a session.

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.


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.

Further information

My background:

I am a mature counsellor who has both life and professional experience.

After 20 years working for several large companies in Human Resources, I chose to leave my business career and have spent the last 12 years building up my professional experience as a counsellor within the voluntary and private sector. I have experience of working as a counsellor within an EAP environment (Employee Assistance) and have received positive feedback from both my employers and clients.

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.
