About me


It takes a great deal of courage to recognise and acknowledge to ourselves that we are suffering and struggling to cope with life. The next courageous step is to accept that we need help, that we want to get better, and then to reach out for that help and support. Please be assured that by browsing this website you are taking the first tentative steps on your road to recovery.

Most of us remain hidden to ourselves going through our lives as if we are asleep on automation enduring rather than living. Aware that at the core of our being something is not right and that there must be more to life than this. However, often it is a crisis, a major life change or a worsening of our symptoms that leads us to counselling and psychotherapy. Examples include: -

  • Anxiety & depression
  • Stress
  • Obsessive behaviour
  • Phobias
  • Illness
  • Relationship issues
  • Low self esteem and confidence
  • Bereavement
  • Post traumatic stress
  • Self harm
  • Childhood abuse
  • Addiction
  • Feelings of emptiness, loss of purpose, direction & meaning
  • Redundancy
  • Mid life crisis
  • Divorce
  • Coping with getting older & end of life

About me

I am qualified as a Psychosynthesis psychotherapeutic counsellor and provide counselling and psychotherapy. I know from personal experience and working with many clients that when we seek help we are often at our most vulnerable. So it is vitally important that you feel and are safe and secure. If you decide to come to see me I promise to welcome you with an open mind and heart and to provide an environment that is warm (literally in the winter as you will often find yourself sitting beside an open fire!), empathic, compassionate, non judgemental and totally confidential. I will accept you as you are without criticism or judgement as a fellow human being who is doing the best that they can. As someone who wants to be more able to cope with life’s challenges and to find inner peace and happiness.

About counselling

Essentially individual counselling and psychotherapy involves a one to one conversation between the therapist and client in which the therapist facilitates the client to open up and explore their issues and challenges in a safe and empathic environment.

There are numerous techniques that can be used to aid this process and as I am trained in a diverse range of techniques including: -

  • Active dialogue & analysis
  • Gestalt therapy
  • Mindfulness stress reduction
  • Meditation
  • Guided imagery & visualisation
  • Dream work
  • Art therapy
  • Imagery & symbols
  • Neuro linguistic programming (NLP)
  • Gestalt
  • Breathing exercises

Together we will work out an individual plan that is unique to you using the techniques that you are comfortable with and that work best for you. If you would like to find out more how I might be able to help you then please contact either on 0754 5503974 or e-mail me.

All enquiries are treated in strictest confidence.

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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.
